First edition, first printing. Publisher's original dark green pictorial cloth with titles in black to the upper board and spine, in dustwrapper. Illustrated with four full-page colour plates and 30 black and white drawings in-text by Paul Hardy. A very good copy indeed, the binding square, firm and bright. The contents with one plate neatly tipped back in (with a little wear to the top edge and standing slightly proud at the foot), a school prize plate to the front pastedown and a little tanning to the endpapers are otherwise in very good order and clean throughout. Complete with the very good dustwrapper which has a little loss to the top right-hand corner of the front panel, a few small nicks to the spine ends and extremities and some minor tanning to the spine. Not price-clipped. An excellent copy, very scarce in the dustwrapper.
Part of the author's 'Christabel' series, this title dedicated "to little folk, both French and English, in the hope that it may help to make them good friends in the future".
