My Great Big Picture Book

£14.99

Product description

A scarce edition, printed in 1925, of one of the children's annuals produced for Oxford University Press by the team of George Herbert Ely and C. James L'Estrange. It is an omnibus of short simple stories and poems for young readers with both pen and ink sketches and coloured full-page illustrations. The paper covered boards are grubby in the white areas, all edges and corners are worn, and spine sides are split exposing webbing. There is a partial break between the front end papers and some smaller breaks between other pages. Text block edges are dust soiled and there are various light marks to most pages of this 'well-loved' book. The "This Book Belongs To" panel has been completed in ink by a young owner. A small bookseller stamp by Ruddocks Lincoln is at the bottom of the rear end paper. Unpaginated. The book would be of interest to those searching for bedtime reading, or collectors of these early annuals.
