The Golden Bird

£29.99

Product description

Very nice 1st edition copy, in its original unclipped dustwrapper. This is a lovely book; the book has a green/gold cloth cover, with a large gold gilt bird on the front, and gold gilt lettering to spine; wear to top edges of jacket and it appears that it may have been bent and slightly torn and mended with a bit of sellotape. Slight foxing to top of boards and dw. A very clean copy with many illustrations - 8 full colour plates and 30 pages of black and white drawings.

The book has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged

The story is that after helping the injured Golden Bird, an old Polish woman living in the forest is rewarded with magic powers.

Jan Pienkowski's idiosyncratic silhouettes and vivacious witches have charmed generations of children.
