Printing Details

First edition, first printing. Hardback in dustwrapper. 21.5 × 14cm, 191pp.

There has been a huge festival and no end of rubbish has been left behind—everything from sunglasses to shoes, drinks cans and bottles. Who would have thought humans could leave so much behind, not bothering to recycle? The Wombles have their work cut out for them...


A good copy but ex-library. There is a label to the ffep and a small stamp to the copyright page but otherwise the library markings are minimal. There is some small amount of seepage from the green dye to the pages' top edge, and occasional marginal tanning. The dustwrapper is a little wrinkled and edgeworn but now in a protective sleeve and the book remains in strong readable condition.
