Louis Wain The Happy Family 1910 1st edition
1910. Happy family card game. Dispatched with Royal Mail 2nd Class. Original 1st edition, The Happy Family illustrated by Louis Wain. Published by Raphael Tuck & Sons Ltd in 1910. The book is in exceptionally fine condition, especially for a book that is 119 years old. There arn't many of these book's around so it is quite rare. Including the frontispiece, there are 8 delightfully full page colour plates plus a lovely colour plate pasted on the front cover. In addition the book is illustrated, profusely throughout with black and white, illustrations with quite a few of them, full page. The boards sit nice and square and are flat with nice square sharp corners and there is no rubbing. The original spine is in perfect condition with just light rubbing at the top and bottom . Internally the binding is quite firm and tight The pages which are a nice creamy white are undamaged except a leading edge of one of the plates is a little rough hardly noticeable. There is just a light finger smudge here and there. The book is in really amazing condition for it's age and highly collectable. It comes in a strong durable transparent cover which is easily removable. I post world wide including the USA. If you have a few minutes to spare why not take a look at my other listings. A little fellow called Rupert Bear is well represented, and a bit of money to spare, I think you can rely on Rupert to safely look after it for you, Thank you for your time.
