John Symonds: illustrated by Edward Ardizzone
Price: 45.00 GBP
London: Bodley Head, 1957. (iv), 35pp, illustrated with Ardizzone's drawings. Contents unsoiled but with some quite heavy foxing to the first and last few pages: the story pages are much less affected. Firm and very bright and clean in pictorial boards, with just a small rust mark to base of lower board. In the protected unclipped pictorial dust jacket: this has two short (2cm) closed tears to top edge of the front panel, small chips at spine ends, and a little faint foxing, with a tiny red biro mark to the illustration on the front. The general demeanour of the book is fresh. First edition. Very Good.
