An earlier edition than the other one I have listed, and in better overall condition, but without the delightful illustrations.
I have classified it as a children's book, but really it is for anyone who recalls, or needs to recall, what it was like to be a child. He describes "a world where children are locked in perpetual warfare with the adult 'Olympians' who have wholly forgotten how it feels to be young".
About 7.75" by 5"; hand cut pages; little or no foxing; 196pp. Pencil inscription on FEP (see photo).
17th edition, 1904; John Lane/The Bodley Head.
Item ID: GOLDENAGE2
