Appleton, Honor C.

Hardcover, no stated date, but according to World Catalog references, this would be a 1951 first edition. Other book references mention the 1930s but this is lilkely incorrect. Anyway... the book has rather worn covers, with some mesh exposed. The pictorial front cover is a little chipped and rubbed. The good news is that all 8 lovely colour plates illustrated by Honor Appleton are present, clean and vibrant.
