Hard copy of ‘Let there be Ys’, signed by the author and including the supplement. Used, but in good condition with dust jacket. Some discolouration to the spine of the dust jacket due to exposure to light

It is in very good condition with minor surface scratches due to polishing and being on my car for several years.
