Description: This beautifully illustrated encyclopædia is one of those books that every child dreams of having in their personal library. The book is split into six sections:
The jacket has a small loss where it meets the spine (see image) and has some scuffing along the top and bottom edges. It has also been price-clipped. The previous owner has applied their own laminated binding, resulting in the flaps being held to the pastedowns by adhesive tape. There is also a small dedication printed on the fep in blue ink. The pages, on the other hand, are in excellent condition: crisp, uncreased, and free from any kind of marking.
A truly wonderful book.Measures 26 cm × 19 cm (10.4″ × 7.6″). 4to. 544 pp.
