Good with masking tape to some corners of wraps, creased concave spine, bumped corners. Wraps unevenly toned and offset (it looks like some sort of makeshift spine label was made at one time, perhaps for a reference copy?), back cover a little stained. The basis of the 1943 film; titled Uncommon Danger in the UK. Item #170308006
