Murray, Gordon ; illustrated by Tony Hart Penguin Books | Puffin Harmondsworth 1958 First Edition Soft cover Very Good Book 12mo - over 6 - 7" tall Hart, Tony 
Very scarce picture puffin in really nice, clean condition. Unfortunately just one die-punched press out shape from p.26 has slipped out, so is missing. It is otherwise in excellent condition. Flexible card covers with stapled binding and yellow cloth spine. Just a hint of rusting to the staples showing through the yellow cloth. Some very light indentations to the covers where it looks as though the book may have been lightly used as a rest for writing on a piece of paper. The binding is really tight. No previous owner's names, inscriptions or other marks. Browned inside the covers and to the first page. pp. 31. A lovely example if you can overlook the missing shape. 18.4 x 26cm. 106144
