Book Description

The book is very bright and clean with slight foxing to first few pages and page edges but a nice tight copy. The wonderful, uncommon Nina K Brisley dust wrapper is a little soiled, particularly to the plain white areas on spine and rear panel. It is however complete with some closed tears and creasing , priced at 2/6 a really lovely early reprint with typical Brisley illustration to the front and spine. INTERNAL ILLUSTRATIONS are by Harold Earnshaw in black and white. An unusual item for the Oxenham or Brisley collector. Further details on request.
