"The Story Of Mrs. Tubbs" is written and illustrated by Hugh Lofting (Who also authored the Dr. Doolittle series). The book was published by Fred A. Stokes, Co. and copyrighted in 1923. The copyright page is curious in that it states "Published, Sept. 14, 1923, Second Printing, Sept. 7, 1923 (before publication). How a second edition could be published before the first is a bit of a mystery to me but that's what it reads.
The book has a paste-down illustrated cover and full-color and black & white illustrations as well as illustrated end papers. The book has some foxing on the front and back inside pages. There is an embossed "L" in a circle on the front right end paper. The binding is tight and the pages unbent. The cover has some light scuffing and some slight bumping of the corners. A truly delightful book to collect and enjoy.
