The Schoolgirls Treasure Book

£24.99

Product description

Large thick book with pictorial boards, the front has a picture of a young lady holding the reins of a horse, the back is blue with the publishers identification in white. The spine is canvas that wraps round the binding edges of the boards. The boards are worn and marked with the underlying board exposed at the corners.

The hinges of both boards are broken along the majority of their length but still attached at the bottom, the rest of the binding is in reasonably good order, cracked in places but still sound.

The ownership section on the front pastedown has been completed by a previous owner dated 1939.

The cheap paper is yellow with age and some foxing throughout. There is no childish marking in the book as far as we can see, although we have not examined every page.

Fair condition for a child's book of its age.
