A very nice copy with a hint of wear to bottom edges, corners, and spine,  light surface wear to covers – these minor flaws, are all fairly typical with this title because of the vulnerable silver foil papered boards. Inscribed inside.
The Teddy Boys were a flashily dressed, rebellious and sometimes violent youth movement that originated in Britain in the ’50s. The three – quarter – length Edwardian jacket with velvet collar, drainpipe trousers and quiff became a focus of male fashion which still holds cult status today. The Teds combines image and text to tell their story – – a fascinating tale spanning three decades.
