London, Herbert Jenkins Limited, (printed in Great Britain by Wyman & Sons Ltd.), 1929, lg. in-8vo, (21.5x18.5m cm), 79 p. (+ 1), fully illustrated in color, publisher's original green cloth, title and border stamped in black, a very good copy (with a facsimile of the original dustjacket). ¶ First Edition. Amusing verses about skating, sledging, tobogganing, curling, ice-skating and skiing in Switzerland, with a funny collection of Baumer's cartoon style illustrations. Internally very clean, I added a facsimile of the extremely rare original dustjacket in color. The text is a series of light-hearted poems on the subject of the British abroad on winter sporting holidays. The illustrations which are brilliantly coloured convey all the stereotypes of the smart Swiss ski-ing holiday. Please notify before visiting to see a book. Prices are excl. VAT/TVA (only Switzerland) & postage. Swiss National Library -; Rero -.
