Description: Consists of 22 short stories and comic-strips, all illustrated in colour – the former have had their colour applied à la Lichtenstein – plus a game.
Pastedowns and endpapers are illustrated in 6 colours.
Glazed pictorial boards are in excellent condition for their age, although there is a long scar on the rear (refer to image). The previous owner also used the rear cover as a rest at some point, as the name 'MISTER GRAHAM NORTH' is discernible when viewed under direct light. Internally, the annual is in fabulous condition for its 50 years: the pages are crisp, bright, and completely free from foxing, tanning, or any kind of marking! Binding is tight. Unclipped: bears its original price of 7′6.
A lovely copy of a true collectors' item.
