The twenty-seventh of December, 2010: slight marginal soiling

First instalment from the Clutterbuck Christmas stocking: a page from Ronald Searle’s fantastic Slightly Foxed – But Still Desirable (Souvenir Press, 1989), an illustrated glossary of jargon from the secondhand-book trade.

 

‘Unwashed, with only slight marginal soiling’

Thanks, Mum and Dad.
