Individual copies of the BOP are more interesting than the bound annuals because they contain all the ephemeral material (adverts; editor's yarns; books, hobbies and gadgets; notice board; new stamp issues; other odds and ends; the cover-art) that is not included in the annuals; and, of course, they are 'as-issued'.
Cover 'dusty' with some fox spots; cover detached; edge-wear; staples rusty but sound (no staining); slight page-edge browning; good, very reasonable copy.
