How it works


xvi plus 474pp. Re-backed retaining original cover cloth. New EPs. Tissue reinforcements and repairs done to two pages. A well restored copy. Pages 65, 337, 457 have the uncorrected marginal illustrations of the dung-beetle pushing the dung-ball with its front legs and page 316 depicts Snowball the horse being helped up an impossibly high river embankment. These are the same illustrations that appeared in the first impression before corrections were made. This then is a mysteriously uncorrected fifth Impression.
