A first edition, first printing published by James Nisbet in 1910. A very good book without inscriptions. Rough cut pages which have been opened a little too roughly. Gilt top edge. Some wear to the edges and spine tips. First edition thus, first issue, with the additional conjunction in the title. A collection of three works previously issued separately as Things in Our Garden (1906), The Child’s Book of the Seasons (1906) and Pond and Stream (1906), now with new illustrations and partially reset. Ransome published very little before 1910 and these stories represent his first foray into the juvenile market. His best-known work, Swallows and Amazons did not appear until 1930.
