The Voyages of the Limping Flamingo

WAS £50.00 £15.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

'The assistant produced another photograph. "This," he said, "is a very good boat. It is the S.S. Limping Flamingo."
"Too big!"
Patiently the assistant produced a smaller photograph of the Limping Flamingo, which he handed to Fred.
"Much better," said Fred. "I'll buy it!"

Published by George G. Harrap & Co, London (1962).
Written and illustrated by Neil Jones when he was a fourteen year old schoolboy and which appears to be the only book he ever wrote. Illustrated by the author himself.
Introducing the Poggy people.

This short but hilarious book tells of the adventures of Fred Harry Pogger-Smith of Pogland, who decides to buy a boat. He recruits a crew consisting of the chief engineer, the navigator, the stoker, the cook, and the char-poggy.

CONDITION: Slight browning to the page edges. Light splodge staining to late pages 67-70. No inscription. Dust jacket good with light soiling and some very minor tears at the edges. Not price-clipped but small piece of DJ torn from inside the front cover. DJ still bright and now protected in see-through plastic loose cover. Good binding. (See photos)
