Soft bound in vegetable tanned buffalo calf, with matching hand-tied leather tag-style bookmark bearing the name and author of the book.

Paper wrap-around titles slip over the box. A full set of these superb collector's editions. The only visible flaw is in the form of some small indentations to the slipcase wraparound of The Big Sleep. All volumes are still shrinkwrapped and as new.

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
