First edition of the fifth Daily Express Rupert Annual. Publisher's original pictorial boards. Illustrated in colour throughout. An excellent better than very good copy, the binding firm with some rubbing at the spine edges and bumping at the tips. A few light scratches to the lower board. The contents are entirely complete and without loose or torn pages. There are no previous owner's inscriptions and the pages remain clean throughout. An attractive example of one of the scarcest annuals to acquire in decent original condition.
This was the first of the Daily Express annuals to be released with a pictorial paper covered spine rather than the red cloth of previous editions. As such the binding is prone to heavy wear and loss.
