Hardback w/Jacket



Printing Year:


The Handy Bookshop

The Glass of Fashion
By Cecil Beaton
Weidenfeld and Nicholson, London. 1954

"A personal history of fifty years of changing tastes and the people who have inspired them."

UK first edition in jacket.

Condition:  Near Fine for age in very acceptable jacket.  Internally excellent, strong, clean and tight, with just mild yellowing and a small pencil price on ffep. Slight dust darkening to top edge. Minor bumps to spine ends and a little shelf wear to extremities. Slight mark to bottom edge. The jacket is unclipped, with some yellowing, which is a little heavier on the front and the spine - please note that the photo makes the jacket look a little more white than it really is.  Some shelf and handling marks, with a few spots and a little wear. There is some creasing at the edges - mainly the top - and some chipping and creased tears - it could be significantly improved with repair and a protective sleeve. Slight fade to the reds on the spine. Generally, well above average for age.

Note: The photo below has slightly inaccurate colours. See above.
