Beresford, Elisabeth
The Wombles Signed by the author and The Wombles!
Ernest Benn Limited, London, 1968. Beautifully well preserved copy of this extremely scarce first edition of the children's book that possibly started the drive towards recycling! Signed to the recipient who was a children's librarian, ".Best wishes from Elisabeth Beresford and the Wombles." I think she may have been joking but who can tell?! This dedication is signed on a simple piece of notepaper which has been stuck on to the front free end paper. The glue shows through a little to the top side of the note paper. The dust jacket is just a tad edge worn and chipped with a tiny bit of loss at the foot of the spine at the back hinge. Signed copies of Wombles books, especially the first in the series, are very scarce indeed. Details of provenance on request. Photos available on request. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: M RICHARDSON RARE BOOKS (PBFA) EST. 2004 [Ashby cum Fenby, NE Lincolnshire, LINCS, United Kingdom]
