Description: Extremely rare schoolbook featuring a selection of stories, fables, poems, and fairy tales. Contains a number of questions and exercises. Only one of these has been attempted, in pencil.

Excellent b&w illustrations throughout (some of which are full-page).

Considering its age and previous life in the classroom, the book is in good overall condition and is a very rare survivor. It is missing 3½ cm (1.4″) of the head and 2½ cm (1″) of the tail of the spine – resulting in the cover and first few pages being loose at the bottom – though the others remain intact and show no sign of wanting to part company with the binding. Pages show considerable signs of handling and there are some minor marks (though no scribbling, annotations, &c.). Page 59 is missing a small part of its top corner. The previous owner has neatly printed their name in the top corner of the ffep.

Measures 18.5 cm × 12.5 cm (7.4″ × 5″). 12mo. 108 pp.

Price: £20.00
