About this Item

There is confusion about this title. This particular copy has The Voyage of the Wishbone Boat as the title on the front cover. The title page, however is just The Wishbone Boat. The copyright page has only the 1906 copyright. Most of the copies available online are copyrighted 1907 - some with 1906 and 1907. What I believe happened, was that this first edition was issued with 5 b&w plates and frontispiece, in cloth. The 1907 edition has 8 color plates added. It also has paper covered boards. The NY Times had a review from July 1906 in which they said it would be published in the fall. This would be the true first edition. Green cloth boards have a decorative stamped border around a full color pastedown. There two tiny chips at pastedown edges and a slight rub along right side. There is one black speck on front cloth and two on rear, otherwise the cloth is clean. Corners are ever so slightly bumped and are unworn. The spine has a slight rub along top but shows rubbing/bumping at bottom. There is a gift inscription dated 1914 on ffep. Hinges are intact and binding is tight. The contents page is torn along the spine up 2" from bottom but there are no other tears. The pages up to 19 (text starts on page 11 but this includes prelims) have heavy toning/foxing, and the rest have light, scattered foxing/spotting. All five b&w plates plus the frontispiece are present. Conservative grade G+ to Very Good. This is a wonderful story about a Princess who makes wish on a magic wishbone which turns into a flying boat to aid her in her quest for Beauty. She encounters all manner of folk/creatures in her voyage. Bookseller Inventory # 000100
