This lovely book is in Fine condition, tightly bound in it’s original dark blue boards, clean and free from marks both inside and out. Ther pages are beautifully clean and bright nad the only flaws to speak of is some very slight bumping to the spine ends and board corners.

In all this is a lovely copy of this book by the popular children’s author, Philip Pullman.
