Dandy Book 1957
The comic annual, Dandy Book from 1957 is for sale. The Dandy Book 1957 was published by D.C. Thomson. The Dandy Book 1957 front board bears a Korky the Cat comic strip of four fishermen returning with the catch on a train, and relieved of their catch by Korky the Cat. The Dandy Book 1957 back board features a Desperate Dan comic strip.
The Dandy Book 1957 binding is in Good condition with wear to the spine, surface loss to the boards, edge and corner knocks, and small marks to the top edge of the front board. However, the colours to the comic strips are still very bright and the boards are structurally sound with wear being consistent of a children’s book of this age.
There are 125 numbered pages, but lacks the front free endpaper.
