Frederick Warne (Publishers) Ltd, 5th reprint 1979
A substantial work, well illustrated. Originally published in 1966, this copy being a later printing. A new edition of this work, revised and with new material, was published in 1989 – see here.
Hardback in dustwrapper. pp xxx, 448, plus b/w and colour plates. 9.5 x 6.5 inches approx. (241mm x 165mm).
Light wear and creasing to top and bottom edges of dustwrapper, especially spine ends and corner tips. Lightly bumped to spine ends and boards at corner tips. Occasional handling crease to pages but otherwise pages appear clean throughout.
Overall, a particularly nice, clean copy – lovely.
