I always think I should have a copy of this whenever one comes up, as I went to Huddersfield University and it is about time I knew what the hell anyone was talking about for those four years. Not a bad place - we even had a student union bar so fantastically dingy that it was called "The black hole". Your feet would stick to the floors if you stood in the same place too long...

LOL
I had a friend who went to university there and I know exactly what you mean.
A good book to have but if it had the jacket - wow that would be special

I think the jacket would be the clincher, and I don't think I have ever seen a copy come up for sale that included it. I can't imagine that there was a huge print run on this title, so I suppose there may simply be no survivors.

I don't recall seeing a dustjacketed copy of this, either. I am sure someone lurking here (Findegil? Bernd?) has one tucked away, if one does exist.
