Description: A certain king had three sons, whose names were Azor, and Zoris, and Shani. They lived in perhaps the smallest, and certainly the most beautiful, country in the world – a green country singing with bluebirds, yet so small it was like one exquisite garden set in a glass bowl. Thus begins a truly beautiful and touching fairy tale, every bit as moving as it is enchanting.
Illustrated with superb colour paintings – most of which are full-page or double-spread.
Glazed pictorial boards with white cloth spine – green embossed text to latter. Corners are largely straight, although the lower ones are rubbed. Bumping to spine ends. A delightfully illustrated Christmas greetings stamp from the Spastic Society has been affixed to the ffep. Pages are printed on heavy paper and are in excellent overall condition, with only the slightest hint of tanning in places. Otherwise all are completely free from foxing or any other marking. Binding is sound.
