Title: The Sun Soccer Annual 1979
Author: Chris Morgan, et al.
Year: 1978 (First Edition)
Publisher: City Magazines Limited
Book Condition: Good/Very Good
Jacket Condition: N/A
Description: More than 40 articles on all aspects of the game, plus a number of quizzes and puzzles (the crossword has been completed in pencil). Highlights include results of the 1978 World Cup, an interview with (and photograph of) the legendary Radio 1 DJ, John Peel, and illustrations of Scottish and Football League kits.
Illustrated throughout with colour and b&w photographs, some of which are full-page. Despite boasting "96 Action-Packed Pages", it only has 94. For some reason, the editors chose to treat the contents page and rear pastedown as bona fide pages.
There is some minor marking on the boards (only visible under direct light), but are otherwise in very good condition. Not price-clipped: original price of £1.45 still present. Pages vary in condition. One has a negligible 0.5 cm (0.2") tear at the bottom, a handful have some creasing near the gutter, whilst others have some slight tanning around their edges. On the whole, however, the pages are in good, unmarked condition. Binding could be tighter, and a small number of pages have become slightly loose at the bottom, but remain in place.
Measures 21.5 cm × 27 cm (8.6" × 10.8"). 4to. 94 pp.
