The artist goes sketching in the zoo with dire consequences; Master Chubb's dachshund curiously named Jumbo is very naughty; 2 small children fail to catch a mouse causing mischief while in hot pursuit; 2 naughty children disobey Mother, play on the pond, fall in etc. Artist's Sorrows: spine slightly rubbed, small crease to lower corner of lower cover; How Mousie was Caught: spine slightly rubbed and expertly strengthened on the inside, tiny chip to 1 long and 1 short side of lower cover, minute chip to 2 corners, the spine is on the long side on this title, on the short side on the other 3; A River Excusion: slight crease to upper cover next to spine, spine just slightly rubbed; Master Chubb is a very nice copy. A good plus set, all titles are rare, the set even more so. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE, FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.
