On the Ball: A Football Story [Blackie, c.1926]

£12.99

Product description

A delightful school football story, undated (from around 1926) published by Blackie & Son. Includes 6 full page illustrations by T M R Whitwell, although the frontispiece one is unfortunately missing.

Very much a story of its time; great fun to read for all ages.

Clearly a well read favourite there is some rubbing wear on the covers and one illustration is missing. The cover is darkened and marked. There is a small amount of foxing on the first couple of pages and edges of the pages, with some marks on the end papers but the internal pages are all in a good clean condition and the binding is sound. Overall in reasonable condition.
