This is a "very good plus" or better vintage hard cover in black paper wrapped boards, profusely illustrated with examples of conceptual art, film stills, and behind the scenes photos, 271 page including an index.
Has a strong intact binding and hinges/gutters. No writing, no loose, torn or folded pages. The text block closes square and tightly. The board corners are fairly crisp, with the uppers showing just hint of light bumping. Text block edges are uniform and bright, clean with just a super faint, small hint of a stain on the top edge. The titling on the spine is crisp, bright, complete.
The matching dust wrapper is not price clipped, showing original publishers price of $17.50 inside the front flap. Some chipping at the flap fold corners and at the bottom of the spine edge. There is a loss at the top of the spine that wraps around on the back a bit. No writing or other tears. Minimal edge wear along the bottom edge of the boards. Now protected in a removable archival sleeve.
Will ship promptly, carefully packaged, fully insured.
Scarce title! Will make a really great gift for the Kong enthusiast in your life.
