1930. 220x175mm, 199pp, illustrated with a full colour frontispiece, as well as unique monocrhome wood-cut chapter heading vignettes, bound in original cloth hardcover in fragile incomplete paper dustjacket with paste-down colour illustration on the front cover panel. A good copy of a vintage children’s work: the jacket is absent a majority spine panel, with some chipping, rubbing toning, and a very mild chip of the illustration. Internally, a generally clean copy with a cello tape exlibris plate on the free front endpaper and some soiling of the page edges. The extremities are mildly affected by slight off-setting and foxing. Overall this is a stable copy, with mylar protective plastic, which maintains a clean interior, and attractive illustration.
