296 pages. Light soiling to covers, with peeling/curling to outer corners of front and shallow splitting at head and foot of spine. Nicks to fore-edge up to page 40. Binding is sound. A good example of this extensive catalogue at the end of its run. From its start in 1964 through this issue the mail-order business for Burton was not profitable and it was sold in the autumn of this year. See: Eric Sigsworth's Montague Burton: The Tailor of Taste, 146f, and a note in The Glasgow Herald: 29 July 1970, p.3. Due to size and weight shipping will be more expensive than the default in this listing: please inquire.
