This was the first of the three Dalek annuals published in the 1960s and was was published in autumn 1964. It was followed by the Dalek World in 1965 and the Dalek Outer Space Book in 1966. Stories and articles relating to the Daleks. The Doctor does not appear in the book.

This is a stunning, beautiful example of the very first Doctor Who-related annual. It really has very few faults indeed. Externally this is one of the finest examples of this book that I have ever seen. Even the laminate on the covers has not crinkled (a common issue with this book). This example has survived remarkably well. There are a few superficial scratches (the worst is just about visible in close-up ninth photo, running from the Dalek's eyepiece to the neck-rings), but no major defects. The corners are very good with only very, very light bumping. Covers are bright with excellent colour, although the front overhangs the rear by a few millimeters. The spine is in excellent condition. The book has not been used as a writing/drawing board. It has not been abused. I think it has hardly been read and spent its life on a shelf.

Internally the pages are in excellent condition and have aged extremely well with little or no discolouring! No foxing that I have noticed (brown marks caused by chemicals in the cheap paper used). The binding is in excellent condition. No pages are loose or detached, and they should stay that way for a long time to come. 

Not price-clipped. No missing, bent, damaged or torn pages. No names or inscriptions or graffiti.

So all in all this an unmolested, lovely, superb example of the Dalek Book with very little to fault it. One of the finest examples I have ever seen. Almost certainly the best one on eBay. Finding a better example will be extremely difficult. Absolutely superb! But please study the photos well, just in case I have missed something.

The price reflects the amazing condition of this example. Similar examples have sold for over £300 on eBay before now.

Please study the photos well, however. They form part of the description.

Why not try making me an offer?

Would make an excellent gift for a Doctor Who fan!

Please look at my other items. Always a few Doctor Who items for sale!
