Five Go Adventuring Again
Hodder and Stoughton, London 1943 - 1st impression. 8vo., 19.4 x 12.5cm., blue cloth boards with black stamped titles to the front and spine. 192pp with colour frontispiece and 33 full page black and white illustrations and original unclipped dust jacket with 5/-net price. The boards are very good although the top board is lifting just slightly. The titles are bright and there is minimal dust staining to the top and bottom edges and a small faded triangle measuring 1.2 x 7cm along the top edge of the upper board and similar to the top and bottom of the shoulder and top of the spine. Internally, the book is very clean with no foxing, only one or two usage marks and an ownership name in pencil to the f.f.e.p. There is a tiny 2mm closed tear to the fore edge of the f.f.e.p. and page following and a one of a similar size with a crease measuring 2mm x 7mm to the margin of p107. The original dust jacket whilst complete does have a number of faults. The are 3cm tears to the top and bottom of the front shoulder with associated creasing across the front panel, the one at the bottom also extending across the spine. There are closed tears of 2cm and 2.5cm to the rear panel and several small tears of 2-5mm along the top and bottom edges. Tears of 1cm and 2cm to the front fold which is somewhat rubbed. There is some full length creasing down the front flap which is also somewhat dust stained. Despite the list of faults the dust jacket looks much better than expected and this is a presentable copy of a much sought after first edition. If you would like any additional images or information, please do not hesitate to ask. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
