A Tale of Two Cities
I haven't read this before but have always wanted to (probably cause it pops up in a few X-Men comics), but the main reason i'm so happy with this copy (other than it looking so cool and old), is because it's accompanied by some great Illustrations...
These are done by one Harry Kier, who i've never heard of before but i really enjoy his work here.
There's a bunch of colour splash page ones and then the usual b&w drawings with the text.
This edition was printed in 1949, though it looks older to me. And inside the cover there's a message
With Happy Memories,
I thought this was a freaking great buy for 50c and i'm very much looking forward to reading it.
