What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Illustrated, Original Binding, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper

First edition. With the vanishingly scarce original unclipped dust wrapper. Illustrated with a frontispiece and three plates. The curious story of a wonderful crimson caterpillar invented by a young French boy named Henri. With it, he travels the Sahara and meets all kinds of perils in the desert, until they reach the city beneath the sands. Written by Sercombe Griffin, an English writer and chemist who travelled through Africa and Asia.

Condition

In the original red cloth binding. Externally, very smart with light rubbing and minor bumping to the extremities. Original unclipped dust wrapper is also smart with light wear and minor chipping to the extremities. Light sunning to the spine, the odd small mark to the panels, and the odd small closed tear. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are very bright with the odd spot. Sunday School prize bookplate to the front endpaper.

Very Good Indeed
