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. Spine a little soiled. Reading lean. A little foxing to the page block edges. Some staining to the jacket interior, some transferring through to the boards and FFEP. The author's second book [8978, Hyraxia Books].
