Condition

Poor. Just about a reading copy. As mentioned, the book lacks the title page and the binding is heavily rubbed with a lean to the spine. The inner binding is in fair condition but the rear hinge is cracked. However, the stories and illustrations are complete and with careful handing, it can still be read...
