First edition. Original matt buff boards with blue line illustration to the front board. The boards have a strange brittle dried glue-type strip to the spine and spine edges of both boards. I'm not sure why as the boards are in good condition and I cannot see what this glued strip would have been for (see photos). The boards are otherwise clean. The binding is firm and the pages clean and bright but there is a previous owner's name written at the top edge of the front endpaper. 51pp. The dust jacket is very good - light rubs to the spine ends and corners. Price of 2/6 on the front flap of the dust jacket. List of titles in the series on the rear flap of the dust jacket, of which this is the last one. Tally of over 100 available Ladybird titles mentioned on the rear dust jacket flap. The dust jacket is supplied by us in a loose protective clear archival film sleeve. This does not adhere to the book or jacket in any way and protects the jacket against wear. 105113
