Animal Vegetable and South Kensington - A Book of Drawings

£7.99

Product description

"Even humour has not altogether escaped rationing, and Nicolas Bentley is a humorist whose output has lately been severely limited by the war. Consequently the original genius of this 'grand wag', as he has been called by Mr A. G. Macdonell, is now seen all too rarely. The scarcity value of his wit should add, therefore, to the enjoyment of this book, which is a selection of the best of his recent pictures."

First Edition.
Book pages are in very good condition except for some damage from light on the inside front cover.
Dustcover is in good condition with some dirt, but there are some small tears at edges and a small corner missing on back. Not price-clipped.
Hardback cover is in good condition, but with some wear at edges.
