    Text in English. Quarto. Approximately 11.5 x 8 inches. 126 pages (text and page numbers on rectos only). With several leaves of photocopied photographs of the Beatles inserted throughout. With Petitfaux' handwritten ownership inscription on the first blank page. Bound in contemporary half brown morocco over brown cloth (a store-bought binder).
