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.

ALDIN, CECIL
Farm-Yard Puppies
London, Humphrey Milford, ND (1911). 1st edition. Hardcover. pp. 92,Small 4to,,Bound in original illustrated paper-covered boards,An early Aldin 'puppy' tale. No date of publication is shown but our research indicates that it was published in 1911. 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. Ill.: colour illustrations. Aldin is both the writer and the illustrator. There are twelve full-page coloured prints of the mischievous puppies.

BALLANTYNE, R. M.
The Fire Brigade or Fighting the Flames / a Tale
New York City, John W. Lovell Company, ND. Hardcover. pp. viii, 420.Small 8vo,,Bound in original decorated metallic -blue cloth,Pasted to the inside of the front cover is a (publisher's?) statement that this is a 'Sample Volume', and lists four other Ballantyne titles. However, the text appears complete - this is certainly not a salesman's sample, or 'dummy', but a complete book. There is no date of publication, and the four pages of publisher's ads at the end of the book are of little help. The first edition of this book was in 1867, under the title 'Fighting the Flames', published by James Nisbet & Co. London, who were the exclusive British publisher's of Ballantyne's books. (see Eric Quayle, 'Collector's Book of Boy' Stories'). The earliest American edition appears to have been published by Lippincott in 1874. We also note an undated Belford, Clarke (Chicago) edition, probably published in the 1880s, and an undated Philadelphia edition, by Porter, also from the 1880s (but undated). We conclude that our copy was also published in the 1880s, although we can find no reference to this publisher's edition in WorldCat. Our copy shows wear, especially to the board edges, and some soiling. There is some light foxing to the margins, and the binding is a bit stressed at pp. 246/247. Overall, a good copy. Ill.: black-&-white illustrations. All plates present and placed as called for in List of Illustrations.
