Published circa 1940’s. No date indicated. Very gently read and well cared for. Aside from the occasional finger smudge or small stain, the interior is quite clean with no additional contributions from its young readers. Neat gift inscription to the half-title. Pictorial laminate boards (hardcover) are a bit rubbed and bumped to extremities; corners show some loss, small “ding” and very short tear to the top edge of the front board. Illustration to the front board is still quite bright and vibrant. Without dustjacket. 8 colour plates and over three hundred remarkable illustrations and photographs. May require additional postage to your address.
