Condition is of course critical when it comes to books and we are condition conscious
However for rare early titles in jackets there is a lot of latitude.
We are also potentially interested in any UK firsts which are are signed by Golden Age authors.
These need not be in jacket

Dust Jackets and Original Artwork

We are always interested in acquiring dustwrappers without books form the Golden Age
