The Midwich Cuckoos by John Wyndham
First Edition 1957 Ballantine Hardcover with Dust Jacket 247 Pages
Measures 8x6 inches Weighs 1 pound

Condition: DJ is poor, Book is Average
DJ will display nicely however it does have small soiling, shelf wear, scuffs at edges.
The inner flap on front cover has been cleanly removed and another piece of parchment has been pasted in its place. The DJ has writing on the inner.
Book is solid tight and clean. There is a paper that has gotten attached at the front cover (the white spot you see in the pictures) Edges are a little rubbed. Black cloth boards have gold text on spine. Front gutter is showing. Former owner label small and neatly placed on the half title page.
Pages are clean, one I see had a corner fold. Two I saw had blemishes at margins (like large foxing) but overall there is no actual foxing I saw. Text is crisp.

The Midwich Cuckoos is a science fiction novel written by English author John Wyndham, published during 1957. It has been filmed twice as Village of the Damned, with releases during 1960 and 1995.
