168 Animals and their Little Ones (Dean's Rag Book No. 62 - Fluffidown)
Berkeley, Stanley (illustrated by) Dean's Rag Book Co. Ltd [c. 1916] 1916 Soft cover Good Book 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall Berkeley, Stanley 
A Dean's Rag book. Fluffidown - this should be a soft brushed cotton but this particular book is an ordinary Dean's rag cloth book; not as thick and fluffy as other Fluffidown books I have seen. Publication date not stated but estimated to be c. 1916. It was first published in 1907 and this edition was first published in 1914/15 and was in print until 1919. 12 pages including the covers. A washable cloth book, safe for babies. Pinked edges and zig zag sewn binding. Edges are frayed. This book has been well-loved and washed so the covers and pages have all faded. The book is washed and clean. A few very small pale brown marks. One page has been lovingly darned at the bottom corner (which I find charmingly endearing!) - it is the page showing Indian Ducks and Guinea-Pigs on the reverse. 205 x 165mm. 106895
