The Imp of Mischief and Other Verses for Children

£29.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Undated, circa 1930s (perhaps earlier), published by Chatto & Windus. This is a scarce book of children's verse by Olive Chandler. Illustrated with charming full-page colour drawings by Rachel Marshall.

The cover is worn, particularly on the spine and has fading. A former owner's name is written in pencil on the inside of the cover. There some grubby marks on some of the pages; when we received the book it had obviously been used for pressing flowers. However the binding is sound and the illustrations are bright and clean.
