1980 1st edition. 8vo (160 x 240mm) Pp320. Duotone photographs and illustrations. Dark blue boards, spine titled in gilt.

A good anthology with interesting illustrations. I had been put off it by the horrible jacket design, and the fact that it was published by W.H. Smith. However, it is a nice collection and well worth a read.
