The Boys of Monk's Harold by M B Manwell

£10.99

Product description

A children's book aimed at boys. It tells the story of two boys, Topps and Stubbs, and their adventures around Monk's Harold school in New Zealand. There are 16 black and white illustrations throughout the book, by J R Burgess.

Hardback. A dark red cover with an image of boys on the front and gold lettering. The corners of the cover and the edges of the spine and worn. The spine is bent, but the binding is intact. There is a cricket bat and ball illustration on the spine. The inside of the frontispiece is covered by a sticker, which shows that the book was given to a boy as first prize in a competition. A few of the pages in the middle of the book are creased at the top but this does not affect the text. Many of the pages are foxed and there is discolouration around the edges of the pages.

An old children's book with beautiful illustrations and an attractiver front cover.
