Book Condition: Very Good
Jacket Condition: N/A
Description: Beautiful, full-page colour illustrations throughout.
Glazed pictorial boards. The front appears to have been used as a rest at some point in its life, as a few words have become impressed onto the cover where the pressure of the pen went through the paper (only visible under direct light). The price on the rear has been concealed with black ink (refer to additional image). Spine ends are bumped and slightly worn; corners appear to be straight (although one also has some minor wear). On the whole, pages are in excellent condition, although one or two have minor jot of foxing or a grubby mark. Otherwise all are crisp, bright, and have completely resisted tanning. Binding is sound.
