Boys' Adventure Stories
London, Sunshine Press, ND (c. 1935). 1st edition. Hardcover.Small 4to, A very scarce title in the Juvenile collecting genre. No copies currently for sale, and neither WorldCat nor COPAC lists any holdings. No date of puiblication shown, but there is an inscription on the half title page: 'Georgie from Billy H. / Xmas. 1935'. The book is hard bound with glossy paper over the boards, the front board showing a full-colour illustration of two boys sliding down a hill on a toboggan. The image is repeated on the dust jacket, included with this book. The book is illustrated with four colour plates (all present, including one by Cyrus Cuneo) and with line drawings throughout, and contains seven stories written to excite the imagination of young readers, e.g. 'The Secret of the Vault', 'A Prisoner in Peking', 'A Crocodile Adventure', etc. The authorship of each article is individually attributed. The text is printed on rather inferior news stock and now shows a bit of age-toning. The plates are printed on glossy stock, and are fine. The boards show rubbing at the edges. The binding is stressed, with separation beginning at about the middle of the book, but it still is quite intact. Other than the inscription, there is no marking to the text. The dust jacket has an open tear near the base of the spine and several large closed tears. We have repaired the jacket with archival quality tape and encased it in clear acetate. Ill.: Colour plates, line drawings. Unpaginated.

Little Folks Magazine
London, Cassell, ND (1910). Hardcover. pp. 476.Small 4to,,,Many interesting stories, articles, and illustrations. One illustrated story, by Murray Fisher, features the Golliwog character and a Rupert-like bear. 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. Ill.: colour, b&w illustrations.

Storytime
London, Blackie and Son Limited, ND. 1st edition. Hardcover.4to,,,It appears that the binding was previously cracked, and a former owner caused repairs to be done. All parts are present, and the hinges are not split (indeed the endpapers are in very good condition), but the book is tight to open and if pressed open too far would, no doubt, split apart. 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. Ill.: colour, b&w illustrations. Stories for young children, with illustrations by Sylvia Venus (Enid Blyton's illustrator), D. Burton, M. L. Clements & others.
