Ultramarine cloth boards with silver gilded text on spine. Unclipped jacket (8/6) has been repaired with adhesive tape, but is otherwise undamaged. Pages have yellowed slightly with age and there is a jot of foxing one one page. Other than that, the pages are unmarked and tightly bound. Of particular interest is a Voice of Britain propaganda statement (illustrated with b&w logo) on the rear flap: "In every part of the world you can hear broadcasts direct from Great Britain. In every part of the world truthful news has steadily defeated the Axis campaign of lies and slander…".

Scarce in dust jacket.
