|THE CHAMPION, British Boys'
BOUND VOLUME OF THE FIRST HALF YEAR! All 26 ISSUES!!
Vol.1 No.1 to Vol.1 No.26
28th January 1922 to 22nd July 1922 All 728 pages checked and
Early non-professionally bound as shown, but intact. Boards are
worn on the edges.
Numerous close tears on the page edges, probably inflicted when
lightly trimmed and bound.
The only really noticeable piece of damage is an 11x2cm piece
missing on the last page of issue #16, as per photo.
Pages, particularly the early issues and covers, have a degree
of brittleness, spotting and foxing.
Nevertheless, considering how rare it is to find the FIRST 26
ISSUES, all pages are readable.
This volume could be re-cased quite easily and become the
centre-piece of your collection of THE CHAMPION.
