About this Item

The Wonder ABC Book: Three Jolly Alphabets - Toys, Animals, Nursery Rhymes. Illustrated in colour throughout. No date (circa 1940s-1950, with gift inscription dated 1951). Charming children's book with classic 1940s-1950s-vintage artwork. Bright & crisp full-colour illustrations. Contains three separate A-to-Z sections with three different illustrators: Toys (illustrated by Cicely Steed); Animals (undetermined illustrator); Nursery Rhymes (illustrated by E.W.B.). Printed in Great Britain by Mardon, Son & Hall, Bristol. Bound in publisher's original colour pictorial boards, unlettered red cloth spine, pictorial endpapers. No dustjacket. A fair reading copy only. Much handling wear, soiling & wear & blue pencil scribbles to covers, binding cracked with signatures loose & old tape repair with four pages detached (though all still present), former owner's 1951 ink inscription to "This Book Belongs To" page, otherwise a solid hardcover complete copy. A weary survivor of a million reads! The appeal is in the ruinous condition - the inherent character of the book lies in the fact that it took over 60 years of well-worn use to get this way! Unpaginated (84pp complete). Scarce. SB-82. Size: 27 x 20cm. Bookseller Inventory # 023715
