Some creasing, small tears, browning etc, but generally clean, occasional ex-library copy with stamps. Offered as is, without any guarantee of completeness of individual issues (but as far as I can tell they are complete).

Three locations on COPAC, NLS seems to have one issue, Exeter with a few more and Leeds has an incomplete run of Vols 2 and 3.

Noyce describes it as “valuable for its coverage of the Spanish resistance to the Franco regime, as well as for its good theoretical articles. Meltzer’s articles on British anarchist history in the 1975 issues are especially valuable”.
