Clean, tight and unmarked except for really small brown mark to the outer edge of the last page. Slim and unpaginated reproduction of an early children's picture book with chromolithographic colour illustrations (or toy book as they were called in Victorian times). The thin card slipcase is very good - has a glue mark to the top edge / join. A very faint tobacco odour to the book. 105778
