By: Riddell, James

Price: $15.00

Quantity: 1 available


no date but circa late 30s. 125 pp, illustrated throughout from end paper to end paper. Plate at frontis. Cream cloth covers with two blue bunnies are quite grubby, spine darkened. Interior gift inscription dated 1941, hinges just starting, page 17 has a price sticker mark right in the middle of the illustration, page 119 (the Tiddley and Wink page on Prohibition) has a small hole at the bottom margin, otherwise clean if definitely read. A peculiar little book using animals and amusing drawings and theoretically for children, but the section on getting drunk in the Prohibition section seems entirely unsuitable for tots! But a charming book for grown ups who like wink and nod 20th century humor. ; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
