Published by Bearverbriok Newspapers Ltd, London; 1971. This Rupert Bear Annual is in Near Fine condition. There is some very slight bumping to the spine ends and corners and marginal rubbing to the front board, otherwise the boards are beautifully illustrated and are still bright and largely blemish-free. Inside, the ownership details have been filled in using pencil, but apart from this all the pages are present, clean and bright with just the smallest touch of ageing to the edges. It has been price-clipped, but in all this is a very lovely copy of this annual indeed.
