£12.50

Product description

Publisher: Macmillan & Co, London, 1911. Hardback, 262 pages plus 6 pages of publisher's book lists. Illustrated with charming black and white frontispiece and other plates by Walter Crane. No dustjacket. Cover, in blue cloth boards with gilt titling and green and black art nouveau decoration to front and spine, is in good, bright condition commensurate with age. Some fading to spine, light bumping to spine extremities and corners and light shelfwear along spine edges. A few small rubbing marks on back. Please Note that the white marks to front of cover in photograph were remains of sticky labels which have now been successfully removed. Internally the book is in good, firm, bright and clean condition for its 107 years with light tanning to page block edges, endpapers and frontispiece tissue guard and lighter tanning and a little foxing here and there to text pages. Black and white plates are remarkably clean and bright with no tanning. Light pencil inscriptions on half-title page and reverse of frontispiece - easily eraseable if desired. Overall, a nice, honest and beautifully illustrated copy of this lovely old children's book.
