A Thatched Roof

£14.99

Product description

The book has light brown cloth-covered boards and spine. The boards and spine show signs of discolouration especially where they have been exposed to sunlight. Smaller books have been stacked either side of the book so that here the discolouration cannot be seen. The book is illustrated throughout by Rex Whistler. One of the drawings of the cottage in question is shown on the front cover in red. The book's title, author's name and a drawing of an urn are shown in red on the spine. There is considerable bumping to the corners and much shelf wear especially at the lower edges of the book. The endpapers are well-glued to the boards and well-stitched to the spine. These pages show pictures of an urn of flowers and books in green ink. The endpapers show signs of foxing. The pages are generally discoloured and show foxing to the edges. The pages are not well-cut on their lower edges. Because of this, many pages are shorter than the standard size. Inside the first free page is the name (Eileen V Joules?), place (Oxford) and date (December 1942) of a previous owner written in ink.
