17 Camberwick Green Nursery Rhymes No 3
Adby, Pete (illustrated by) Dean & Son, Ltd London 1969 0603015166 / 9780603015168 Hardcover Good No Jacket Book 4to - over 9 - 12" tall 
Glazed pictorial boards. A very nice clean copy of this scarce Camberwick Green book. Pages all clean, though browned at the edges. The sewn binding is in really good condition. The only two flaws are that Paddy Murphy's eyes on the front pastedown illustration have been coloured in and the rear pastedown illustration has been torn, with about an inch missing from the bottom of the picture. Considering that it is usually the binding that becomes weak with these picture books I would still classify it as a near VG copy. Published around the same time as Chigley was first aired on TV (Camberwick Green was first shown in 1966). Unpaginated. Slim children's picture book. 102045
