LITTLE FOLKS MAGAZINE

There is an article by Olaf Baker entitled "Round the World on an Aeroplane", a lovely full-colour plate by Mabel Lucie Attwell, and an illustrated poem by W. Gurney Benham called "The Tiggly Wigglys". Several of the drawings/cartoons would now no longer be considered politically correct. Somebody has spent rather a lot of time, and some money, restoring this book. The spine has been re-backed with new endpapers. Some of the pages have been repaired. The text block is well-thumbed at the edges, and the boards are rubbed at the edges, but the book may be read without trepidation.

There is some light scribbling on a few pages, but nothing untoward. The colour pastedown on the front board is a bit scuffed and soiled, and rubbed at the edges. Overall, the book may be read with care, and is in fair to good condition.

ALDIN, CECIL
FARM-YARD PUPPIES
London, Humphrey Milford ND (1911), 1st edition, hb. Ill.: colour illustrations. Bound in original illustrated paper-covered boards. Small 4to, pp. 92 Aldin is both the writer and the illustrator. There are twelve full-page coloured prints of the mischievous puppies.

It contains twelve full-page illustrations, each signed in the plate by Aldin with his distinctive signature. There is a 13th illustration of the two puppies on the front board, under the title which is printed in bright red letters. The boards are rubbed at the edges, with small loss to the tips, and some light scuffing and soiling. The hinges are tight but the text block has partially separated from the spine. Each illustration is accompanied by a poem (dare we say "doggerel"?). There has been some off-setting of the coloured illustrations to the following pages, but it is neither untoward nor extensive. Several pages have fingerprint smudges. Overall, the book remains in good condition.
