Description: Perrault's classic tale of the anthropomorphic cat, who helps his master win the hand of a princess, and make his fortune, is excellently retold in this exquisitely illustrated book.
Glazed pictorial boards; minor scarring to rear (visible only under direct light). Head of spine has suffered some minor (yet lossless) damage – refer to image. Corners are bumped and lightly worn. Remains of an adhesive label (likely to be a price tag) present on rear – can be removed with a little patience! Curiously, only the pages containing text are lightly foxed; those housing the pop-ups haven't a jot. Still on the subject, the fabulous, multi-dimensional pop-ups are in full working order, and as good as the day they were made – nothing short of remarkable considering the age of the book. Binding is sound.
Measures 11.5″ × 8.4″ (29 cm × 21 cm). Large 4to. Unpaginated.
