Fox's Frolic by Sir Francis Burnand (verses) & Harry B. Neilson (pictures) publ Collins c1910 colour illus, rare original d/j

£70.00

Product description

Publisher: W. Collins and Sons Co Ltd, London & Glasgow, c 1910, believed 1st edition. Hardback with rare, original (if poor) colour dustjacket, profusely illustrated throughout with wonderful full page colour pictures, pictorial endpapers, also charmimg black and white illustrations and decorations in the text. The pictorial cover, in illustrated boards with faded red cloth spine and black titling to front, is in fair to good, clean condition for its age with a little shelfwear to edges and fading and rubbing to spine. Internally the book is generally in fair, clean and bright condition with clear, bright illustrations and text pages with a little foxing and a couple of light handling marks and light scribbles here and there. However the binding has become generally rather loose and the hinge has split at front and rear so that the cover and endpapers have separated from the main part of the book (which itself has somewhat loosened binding in places). However all is complete with no missing pages. There is a sellotape repair to rear free endpaper and there is a scuff to rear pastedown. One or two of the decorated capital letter paragraph headings have been neatly coloured in. The very rare original pictorial dustjacket is in rather tatty / poor condition, separated at the spine (parts of which are missing) with loss of about 40% of the front and with a few tears (mainly without loss) to the back. However, an original dustjacket in any condition is rare. Overall, a fair copy of this most attractive and unusual large format children's book with stunning colour plates and other illustrations, in a very rare (if poor) dustjacket.
