Moonraker 1st/1st - extremely rare 'shoo' variant

Moonraker 1st/1st - extremely rare 'shoo' variant

Incredibly rare and highly sought-after 'shoo' mis-spelling variant to p10 - thought to only exist in only one-in-ten of the total 9,900 print run. The error variant was printed on poor quality and very brittle paper (such that it is a full 5mm thinner than paper used for the corrected 1st/1sts printed afterwards), and as such is often found with pages torn or completely perished. This book has suffered this fate but has been extensively repaired throughout, with time-intensive part and full page preservation work. Though clearly showing repairs, its pages are clean and free of foxing/spotting throughout. It's certainly a book that deserves to have been restored. Unquestionable low survival rates of this variant point to to this being a book that is possibly one of just a few hundred left.
