Paddington takes the Test by Michael Bond 1st / 1st 1979
London: Collins, (1979). First edition.
This is a near fine copy. The wrapper, illustrated by Peggy Fortnum, has light signs of rubbing at the top and bottom edges and light, but scarce, signs of spotting. It has not been price clipped. The boards are free from chips and marks and are tightly bound at the spine. The text blocks are bright and white, but with mild foxing present. Overall, this is a near fine copy in highly collectible condition.
Only a bear like Paddington could find himself taking a driving test by mistake, falling asleep on an historic exhibit in a stately home or locking the Browns' grumpy neighbour, Mr. Curry in a sauna.
