Product description

125 pp. Tightly bound with pages a little thumbed throughout, and a few finger prints to some. Illustrations brightly coloured. Pages are printed on one side only. On the back of page 16 there is a small pencil mark, and on the FFEP an ink inscription which reads "To Philippa, luv Lizzie xx", and 10p written in pencil.The front cover is faded at the edges, and corners bumped. The spine is somewhat cocked and the colours darkened. The cloth binding at the top and bottom of the spine is rubbed through in places with a small piece detached. The rear cover is bright with some darkening at the edges and a small stain centre top. The first printed page contains an advertisement for books "uniform with this volume", in The Little Ones' Library. At the end of the book there are three specimen pages from the three books advertised. This is the story of a little black girl who is snatched by a condor, and rescued by her brother. The following excerpt gives a flavour of the book: "But when his eyes had grown used to the darkness he gave a great shout of delight, for there, close beside him, snug and warm, and laughing all over her chubby black face, lay Snowflake safe and sound." Extra postage may apply.
