This major key, the first appearance of Starman, had no where to go but up. It had been restored by an amateur a long time ago so it graded at an aproximate 1.5 extensive amateur which is almost worse case senerio.
Work performed was remove old restoration, wash cover and pages, leaf cast the cover and the first page, color touch cover and first page, clean staples and a final pressing.
Please note that there was an anomoly with my scan which picked up grey spots in the after picture that are not visible in hand so I added this picture to show how the back cover really looks.
Below the before is on top and after is on bottom for the rest of the photos.
