303 pages (complete). A much owned copy. Mrs Henry Strang was also Mr Henry Strang, who was in turn two men from Oxford who decided to write and publish childrens' stories and books. The thick boards are decorated and titled in gilt (worn and wistful), small circle coloured plate (weary but pretty). The boards are worn and scuffed and marked all about from handling and shelving. They are sound and secure. The front pastedown has a small picture of the French General Joffe affixed. The first pages have been subjected to determined childish inscriptions. The pages are genially aging. They are a little tanned here and there, there are flushes of foxing throughout. However, the contents are kindly, the illustrations (especially the coloured plates (vivid and bright)) are pretty and pleasing. The pages are clear, comfortable, comforting, assured. fk
