The Boy's Own Annual 1891-1892. Volume 14.

£19.99

Product description

Large hardback with red pictorial boards and title on front cover and spine.

There is wear to edges of boards and the spine is starting to fray. At some point the cover has been in contact with water as there are areas where the colour has leached.

Internally the spine has started to split but the pages are secure to the binding. Has a slight slant.

There is a dedication in ink on the fep.

Edges are grubby and there is a little foxing.

Large coloured frontispiece. The coloured plate of the Indian Army facing p. 144 has split along its folds.

Both the colour and black and white illustrations in this volume are very appealing and in addition to the stories there are articles on, for example, building and racing a cruising catamaran and how to make a sleigh; a short play, poetry, a chess puzzle and enough to keep a child occupied throughout 1891 and 1892.

A well-loved and attractive book.
