About this Item

Undated hardback edition, circa early 20th century, with no jacket. In overall good used condition with some signs of handling and storage - red cloth boards, with gilt titles to spine and gilt titles and decoration to front panel, are slightly nicked and faded to spine and rubbed to edges, corners gently rounded and light splash marks here and there. Binding generally tight and appears little read - gutter strained in a couple of places and one or two pages becoming loose, no annotations or inscriptions - name to ffep dated 1945; text and tipped in plates clean and clear throughout. The pages have a faint odour - the book was designed to smell of oil or smoke and look as if it had had close proximity to the devilish and dirty motorcar. It is certainly a beautifully designed and haunting book; all of Arthur Severn's illustrations are present and correct and look out for the ghostly footprints of a child to a couple of pages. This book weighs over 1kg. Not an old library book. Photograph available. Bookseller Inventory # 130667
