1927 first edition. Hardback in fair condition. Nice pictorial boarded covers show scuffing primarily to top of spine and rubbing on most edges. Inside the book has been well used with cracking to spine on inside cover, pulling away slightly but intact. Majority of book clean bar minor foxing to page edges. A couple of later colour illustration plates loose but intact. Dedication dated 1927 to a nephew on inside cover. An interesting period piece with some great illustrations throughout.
