Comment: A book which is in good overall condition. This means that it will be largely free of page markings, the spine will still be in solid, tight condition and there will be no pages which are missing from the book. The pages may have slightly turned corners but overall the book should be clean to touch and enjoyable to read.

"Fascinating . . . an extraordinary look at a life that spanned three centuries" (News of the World)

Excellent book. I know some of the people in the book. It is a wonderful look back at how life used to be, very hard, simple, but maybe better than today??

I love the book of his memoirs, he is a very interesting person.
However, I was surprised to find an Oxfam price sticker on it!
