1970 Thunderbirds/Captain Scarlet Annual


The only (96-page) hardback to combine "Thunderbirds" and "Captain Scarlet" for 1970. By now the annuals were splendidly illustrated with photographs and this example is is a very fine one indeed. All pages are clean and fully attached, apart from minor writing in ink on Page 3. The spine is complete and practically unmarfked, as are the front and rear covers. Price corner is unclipped. It really is one of the best examples we've seen for an awful long time !
