Brief Details of This Annual:

 

The Dandy Book 1957 front board bears a Korky the Cat comic strip of four fishermen returning with the catch on a train, and relieved of their catch by Korky the Cat. The Dandy Book 1957 back board features a Desperate Dan comic strip.

 

 

Condition of the Binding

 

The Dandy Book 1957 binding is in Good condition with wear to the spine, surface loss to the boards, edge and corner knocks, and small marks to the top edge of the front board. However, the colours to the comic strips are still very bright and the boards are structurally sound with wear being consistent of a children’s book of this age.

 

 

Condition of the Pages

 

There are 125 numbered pages, but lacks the front free endpaper.  The Title Page has a wonderful illustration of Korky the Cat, and the Contents Page is divided into Picture Stories, Stories and Comics. Some pages have light to medium spotting that are confined largely to the margins, pages 61 to 66 inclusive are joined together and are loosely inserted, and some page have creases and very occasional small closed tears with no paper loss.
