The Arabian Nights

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

From the Ward, Lock 'Sunshine Series', this book has 16 colour plates and 8 other illustrations by A. E. Jackson.

Pictorial boards with a scene from the Nights on the front and a dramatic red sunburst pattern on the back. The spine is of red cloth that partially wraps around the boards, the title and publisher are in black print.

Some scuffing to the edges of the boards and the corners are worn and bumped, but not as bad as expected for a childrens book of this age, however, there are two torn gaps on the front (see image).

The hinges and binding are in good order.

We can only find one example of marking and that is on a black page, the verso of one of the colour plates.

The plate on p68 has a small 2 cm tear at the top.

Overall this is a remarkably good copy for a children's book.
