The first shows the front of the London Toy Warehouse, children looking in the window and the owner calling them in; the rest show the inside,with a huge array of wonderful toys, books by Dean & Co, and the children having great fun. Above and below each illustration is a 4 line verse on the toys. The well used book was restored long ago by a caring adult, the spine neatly backed with blue cloth, tiny chips to upper cover at edges, no loss of print, small tear to lower inner margins neatly repaired, margins lightly soiled, small neat repair to background of image 6 on verso, a few large tears to page 8, now with neat modern repairs, untidy looking on lower cover where the repairs are more obvious, loss of only 2 words in the adverts. A defective copy of a delightful ephemeral children's book (1 page in facsimile as noted). See Osborne Volume II, page 641, (2nd leaf missing, 3 leaves mutilated). Two copies only located in UK both in the Opie collection, 1 seems to lack upper cover. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE, FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.
