It was simultaneously published in 1974 by Hamlyn (UK), Viking (US) and MacMillan (Canada). This is one of the Viking copies. It was written by the English academic and broadcaster Martin Fido (1939-2019).


It goes right through his life and the text is accompanied by loads of photos and drawings, cartoons and newspaper clippings.


It's a large book--9" x 12".144 pages.
The dust jacket was laminated and the laminating is pulling away from the paper.There is a bookplate on the inside front cover (you can steam it off, or cover it).
The book itself is perfect--pristine.
