Good condition. Pictorial card wraps - Rupert waving from castle ramparts. Produced during the second world war when paper shortages were at their worst, this is the rarest of all the Rupert annuals. Printed only by Harrison.

Front cover and spine are 'detached' from the binding; covers are holding on by rear join. Bottom 2" of spine are MISSING; a further 1" of surface paper loss. Creasing to cover corners; some grubby marks. Surface paper damage to bottom half of front cover, where a sticker has been; remains of sticker. NOT price-cut. Inscription in ink to belongs to box. Grubby margins throughout. Binding at page 72/73 is mis-placed (stitching in wrong place). Illustrations are still lovely and bright!
