The Magic Pudding - Being the Adventures of Bunyip Bluegum and His Friends Bill Barnacle & Sam Sawnoff
Angus & Robertson Limited, 1918, Hard Cover, Book Condition: Fair, Dust Jacket Condition: Facsimile Wrapper, First Edition, Illustrated By: Norman Lindsay. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall, Presented in an attractive brown FACSIMILE (ie non-original) wrapper in very good condition, original but heavily repaired first edition of Norman Lindsay's Australian children's classic. Blue cloth spine with black titles over brown boards, half title page, half title page with colour illustration, title page with printer and publication date on verso (Penfold 1918), 171pp, printing information (Penfold ) on verso. Packed with Norman Lindsay's famous line drawings/ illustrations. 278mm by 220mm, black titles on spine, corresponding to variant 4263a in Marcie Muir's Bibliography of Australian Children's Books, which was printed as part of the first edition of 1918, but not bound till 1921. Covers faded with original cloth spine laid over new one, new endpapers, extensive repairs to page margins with an additional half dozen closed tears to margins (unrepaired tears max 15mm), large repaired tear to page 169/170. Several small fingermarks, and some rubbing or paper transference on pages. This has resulted in the loss of one character on p 160, (sang -> ang), paper loss/transfer between pages 156-7 (see images), loss of first character of 3 words on p 116, loss of two characters and a 5mm line in a penguin's foot on p 88-9. Best to ask to look at the extensive library of images to see if you can live with the flaws, but it has been professionally restored and remains an attractive example of Lindsay's work.
