The spine cover is missing and the boards are pretty much detached making the book a bit loose....apart from that this really is a magnificent old book in lovely condition....a little edge browning on a few pages but no age spotting.The book is dated 1905 Published by WELLS GARDENER, DARTON & Co Ltd, London.There is a Presentation sticker inside facing page dated 1906....book size is 10 x 8" with 413 pages and many great illustrations throughout including some 12 Full Page Full Colour Plates of superb quality on gloss paper....ideal for framing for children's bedrooms or play rooms. The book was printed in Holland and I must say that the print and picture quality is really amongst the best I've seen....looks to have been done using a Lithographic process.
