William Heinemann Ltd, No date. . 23 leaves each printed on rectos only with illustrations and text beneath. Original pictorial boards. Oblong quarto. Original pictorial wrapper. First edition. Just a touch of wear at extremities, else a very good copy in a slightly rubbed wrapper that has a few short tears to the edges. Presentation copy from Nicholson, inscribed in the presentation box on the front fixed endpaper: ‘(For) Prudence Maufe For Christmas 1926 (From) William Nicholson.’ This is a scarce book in first edition - considerably more so than The Pirate Twins - and particularly so in wrapper. Presentation copies are rare.
