Light browning to the edges otherwise very clean and tightly bound to the page block. There was a previous owner dedication to the first blank endpage which was dated as 'Xmas 1949'. I have left the date inscribed but removed the dedication. The story has 216 pages and these are very clean indeed. There is a very occasional soil mark but the text is not affected by this in any way. The story is accompanied with several black and white drawings. The colour frontispiece is beautifully vibrant.
