Printing Details

First edition, first printing, hardback in dustwrapper. 19 × 12.5cm, 193pp.

Quite a scarce light-hearted fantasy about a boy's adventures in Wonderland. From the dustwrapper, "It is a twentieth-century Wonderland, for such old style characters as the fish that talks, the yellow and pea-green camel that likes acid-drops, the tri-coloured tortoise as big as a bungalow, and the hard-riding, fast-shooting cowboy, inhabit a world of war-planes that drop pumpkins because bombs are too dangerous; pocket submarines fitted with armchairs and aspidistras, a villain who, although he wears medieval armour, is in the modern tradition; and a background that shifts from topsy-turvy realism to the set of a film studio and back again."

Condition

The book is in good condition, but with tanned pages and a school prize-label to the front pastedown. The dustwrapper suffers creasing and loss to the edges and has been scruffily price-clipped but it is now within a protective sleeve.
