Great content and fine publisher,
This review is from: Magnum Contact Sheets (Int'l Center of Photography, New York: Exhibition Catalogue) (Hardcover)
This is a great book and fine compilation.
Unfortunately the book has a very poor binding. The front end sheet was torn off right after the opening of the book. Just by the weight of the book's front cover.
Thames & Hudson offered me free copy of this book right after my feedback posting. The brand new book well packed was delivered by UPS from London to Moscow in one day.
Great job, guys! Many thanks!

I had exactly the same problem - looks like a serious manufacturing fault.

Me too... but it was posted to Australia so too expensive for postage to return.
Update: Amazon has replaced it - and just received the new undamaged one in the post, and can return old (very damaged) one at no cost. Just love this book, and once again, very pleased with Amazon and the service. :-)

Thames & Hudson have sent me a new book totally free of charge with no postage fees. And I hadn't to return them back my damaged copy.
So now I have two copies of this book - one torn and another brand new one.

Yes but does the new one have a different binding or is it from the same batch and thus will easily separate as before? If T&H are not going to address the issue by redesigning the binding then I, for one, am not going to buy this book even though it would otherwise be top of my buying list. This not the first time T&H have produced Magnum books with poor bindings. You'd think something as basic as a suitable binding would be a simple thing for a publishing house to get right.
