PICKLES
Written by Cecil Aldin. Illustrated by Cecil Aldin.
Stock no. 1315489
circa. 1909. Hardback. Large format. Almost very good condition.

Large format. Brick red cloth spine, with gilt title. Rest of covers are green cloth with orange and gilt titles. 24 delightful colour plates by Aldin, telling the story of Pickles the puppy. Re-cased with original cloth covers, joints repaired and rear free-endpaper backed as some loss to edges. Some pages/plates slightly ragged to edges where they were loose before repairs. Some creases to pages. Light browning and foxing. Inscription in ink and small newspaper clipping (about Peter the lost Budgerigar!) stuck in with white tape to verso of front-endpaper. Musty odour to contents. Still a decent copy of a scarce title.
