Description: The final book in the series tells the moving story of a young badger as he matures from a baby into adulthood. The story ends with a glossary of technical, advanced and awkward words that were used.
Illustrated throughout with Cuthill's beautiful b&w woodcuts – several of which are full-page.
Pictorial cloth covers. Inside covers and first page foxed; very sporadic thereafter. Remarkably for a book of this vintage, pages have only a hint of tanning, are completely unmarked and very tightly bound. The book appears to lack a title page, but there is no evidence to suggest it ever had one. It is entirely possible that an error at the printers resulted in the book being published without it.
Assumed first edition. A very rare survivor.
Measures 18.5 cm × 12.5 cm (7.4″ × 5″). 12mo. 64 pp.
