Inside, the pages are thick, thrillingly energetic and beautifully printed. The print is bold and fresh. The plates have foxing to the bottom rims. the black background of the 'memory harbour' plate is torn but the plate itself is not damaged. Some pages have foxing and handling marks, but in major generality the pages are unblemished by age or hand. These books may be owned with complete satisfaction, joy and pleasure. fk.
