I don't know why but books in this condition make me very sad, why could they not be looked after better

"In good condition but without dustjacket and maps, lettering on spine slightly faded, very valuable and collectible." In good condition ????

There are some - not on this website, but some folk on another website on which I lurk - who would call a sorry-looking book like that 'well-loved'!

If it were a horse or a dog, folk would be up in arms!

This seller has some other "well-loved" items for sale as well

I completely agree with garm's comment

Ack! I don't have to look, because I can tell by the silver circle 'round the title, and the lettering, that this is a fourth impression of the 1st ed. FR.

What a state to let a book - any book - get into!
