The Chalet Book for Girls

£29.99

Product description

An admittedly tatty copy of an extremely scarce book.
This volume contains short stories and articles on topics of interest to the readers (Cooking in Olden Days; Beauty for the 'Teen-Agers'; What do you want to be-and why?). Pictorial boards somewhat distressed (see image) and the spine's cover is gone, exposing the webbing, also front and back covers are loose. The title page has an insciption in ink (To Pauline From Mother & Father Xmas 1947), the rest of the interior is unmarked. Text is clear although the pages are a little toned with age, there are many delightful b/w illustrations and the colourful frontispiece is charming.
