A first edition, first printing published by Wells Gardner Darton & Co. 1906. First edition; 8vo; half-title, pictorial title and 20 black & white plates including frontispiece by C. E. Brock, 10pp publisher’s adverts at rear, slight age-toning, as usual; publisher’s gilt-blocked maroon cloth, top edge gilt, remainder untrimmed, rubbing to extremities and darkening to spine, otherwise a very good copy. Neat bookplate to the front pastedown and neat gift inscription to the front endpaper. A particularly nice example of this increasingly rare and ever-popular children’s classic, immortalised by the 1970 film directed by Lionel Jeffries and staring Jenny Agutter, Bernard Cribbins and Dinah Sheridan.
