Blue coloured boards with gilt coloured titles to the backstrip. Colour illustrated dustwrapper (wraparound), by Trevor Hood, with blue and light blue coloured titles to the front panel and backstrip. Set in Queensland in the mid 1930s, it is the story of "... Jacko Cobbett, the 'spirit man' whom civilisation has never managed to tame, and in whom the old beliefs in Magic remained alive like a smouldering fire. It is the story of the Archer family, whose tranquil, ordered life is abruptly shattered by the sudden appearance of Jacko on their property one stormy night." -- from the front fold over panel blurb. The book has come in contact with moisture, on the lower edges, and there is staining and parts of the dustwrapper, where it has adhered. Softening to the backstrip edges and rubbing to the book corners and lower book edges. Browning and foxing to the textblock edges and to the first few and last few pages of the book. Creasing to the top dustwrapper edge with rubbing to the dustwrapper panels and fading to the backstrip. The results of moisture can be seen to the lower quarter of the dustwrapper, on the verso.
