*Boys’ Adventure & War Picture Libraries: Probably the most valuable and prized of all Picture Libraries, we’re pleased as punch to present a copy of Commando War Stories In Pictures #1 from 1961: ‘Walk Or Die!’. We don’t see many copies of this coveted collectable — perhaps this is the third to come through us and the last one (six years ago) had 8 pages missing. The good news is that this one is complete, although the front cover is detached, with a couple of small tears at left and right edges. However, the cover image is only marred by two small stains around the foot and knee regions of the commando and Nazi respectively. At some point, four reinforcing staples have been placed through the spine, quite skilfully so as to not hamper the opening of the item nor hide any of the content; there is minimal bleed from these staples and the page quality is really rather nice. So, a low grade and far from perfect copy, but far from the price of one as well!
