The Babar Story-Book

£9.99

Product description

Jean de Brunhoff's books about Babar the Elephant became popular in many countries.
As she has done with other classics, Enid Blyton seized on the Babar stories and produced her own version in late 1941, which was promptly reprinted a second and third time in the same year.
This volume contains the first six Babar books and has black and white illustrations "redrawn from the originals". A small volume, bound in slightly faded orange cloth with blue lettering; although it is scuffed in several places and there are some ink spots on the front, the end papers with their processions of elephants are intact and rather charming. On the reverse of the front free end paper is a name and a date in blue ink, the paper between the reverse of the title page and the first page of text is beginning to split, exposing some of the webbing. Apart from this, the text is clear, the numerous b/w line illustrations are delightful.
