My slideshow is of the ACTUAL copy I'm selling so judge for yourself.

This Revised Edition, is “a memory-guide to nights past”. Subtitled  From ShowBoat to Evita ~ Broadway Off-Broadway and London” it is magnifique!  Published by Mitchell Beazley, UK it has 208 pages. Quarto size(29cm x  22½ cm) there are 208 pages extensively illustrated with both colour and black and white photographs. Still bright glossy pictorial cover of David essex in GODSPELL is superb; there is some sunning to the back cover.

There’s a Contents; Index, Filmography; Discography appendices and a bibliography. Glossy card binding is near mint. There are no inscriptions but a name sticker has been removed from title page. It is still very tightly bound and has minimal handling wear except for where moisture has created a bow on bottom right corner(it doesn’t affect any text or picture, this is the only ‘blemish’ to stop me describing this fabulous book as “Mint!”) Condition Very very Good
