Description: Adapted from the rear board: "Dr. Bert Fegg is a newcomer to the field of writing, having previously concentrated on his other interests—defacing bus shelters, sticking old chewing gum on nuns and frightening people on the Northern Line. In this book, Dr. Fegg fearlessly details the things boys and girls should tell their parents about—including the secrets of the 'Tally-Ho' Automatic Bed Wetter, and the exotic world of the West Bromley Fighting Haddock."
Illustrated throughout with hilarious b&w and full-colour illustrations (some of which are double-spread or full-page).
The boards have light scarring and pockmarks (though these are only visible under direct light), but are otherwise clean and undamaged. Internally, the book is in very good condition – except for page 18, which has been creased. Other than that, all pages are clean and unmarked.
First edition of a rare book, so priced accordingly.
Measures 24.5 cm × 18.5 cm (9.8″ × 7.4″). 4to. 60 pp. + 2 pages of acknowledgements.
