Two early editions of Hilaire Belloc's Cautionary Tales, with verses by Belloc and pictures by B.T.B. Published by Duckworth, London, 1908-1912.
Both books in poor condition, grey boards very shabby.
'The Bad Child's Book of Beasts' interior binding holding, but boards virtually detached from binding, brown tape has been added in past. Pages mostly clean, with one annotation, and handwritten gift inscription on front end paper, date Christmas 1912.
'More Beasts for Worse Children', all pages and boards are separated, but present, no binding remains. All pages have extensive browning.
Priced according to condition, so only £20 for the pair.
