London, Michael Joseph, 1968. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A very good copy. A British favourite, it's legacy carried on in the excellent Ken Loach film of 1969. A key text in the UK school syllabus, memorialising it for a generation of readers. Some rubbing and wearing to the corners, creases and spine tips. Large slice to rear, that's been fixed. Owner's name to front pastedown. A little foxing to the page block edges. The author's second book [6099, Hyraxia Books].
