Light toning to the spine and folds with a small chip to the upper spine. The wrapper remains very attractive in the removable Brodart archival cover. Loosely inserted are some contemporary newspaper reviews for this title. Thompson's classic title in which he 'felt that he had much to learn from the life experiences of his working-class students. The whole tone of his most celebrated work, 'The Making of the English Working Class' (1963), which made his reputation, testifies to this. It was fittingly dedicated to one of these students, and for all its international success it is impossible not to sense that the audience he felt himself to be addressing was a wider one than that of the academy' (ODNB). A very nice example.
