First edition, first printing. Published by Collins in London, 1958. This is a fine (or better) copy. The dust wrapper is spotless and in superb condition with only a hint of wear to the top and tail of the spine. There is also an area of separation to the edge of the rear board. It has not been price clipped, showing the original 8s. 6d. net price. The boards are very bright and clean. They are free from notable chips and marks. The front fly leaf is toned and has a little spotting to prelims and it is free from previous owners ink. Overall, this is a superlative copy of a fine title.
The first title in the Paddington Bear series and exceptionally scarce in this unread, crisp and fine condition – the best we have handled.
