MODERN BRITISH PHILOSOPHY by  Bryan Magee - Hardcover - 1971 - from The Old Bookshelf and


by Magee, Bryan

Condition: Good in Fair dust jacket

An about good hardcover in a fair unclipped dustwrapper. The book is in clean blue boards patchily faded to the board edges and upper front corner, bumped and rubbed corners and spine ends, the occasionally lightly foxed pages are free from annotation and underlining but two pages do have short lines in the outer margin drawing attention to a paragraph each, the text-block edges are tanned and quite heavily foxed. The aged dustwrapper is rubbed to all the edges with several small closed tears and chips to the spine ends and tips, with a soil line along the spine on both panels. Not lovely but a tight useful copy of a scarce title. Carefully packaged and despatched within 48 hours from our wee bookshop in Scotland.
