Description: The exquisite full-page colour illustrations depict an idyllic 1960s childhood. Large text in a 'classroom' font for easy reading.

Matt pictorial boards. Spine ends are bumped and rubbed; corners lightly so. There is further rubbing on the rear cover – mainly confined to the upper-left corner. Previous owner's name faintly and neatly inscribed in blue ink on the front pastedown, otherwise the book is in excellent internal condition for its age: pages are crisp, bright, unmarked, free from foxing and tanning, and tightly bound.

Although the price of 2′6 NET is printed on the front pastedown, this is not a first edition due to the presence of an SBN on the rear board (introduced 2 years after the original printing). This copy therefore likely dates from 1966.

Measures 17.5 cm × 11.5 cm (7″ × 4.6″). 12mo. 52 pp.

Price: £16.00
