Chilgoopie the Glad by Jean Perry 1st / 1st 1906
First UK and only edition published by S.W. Partridge in 1906. This is a very good ++ copy in the pictoral boards. They are in bright and presentable condition. There is minor wear tothe corner tips and to the spine edges. There are two previous owner's names on the front free end paper, one of which is fairly large. There is no foxing and the pages are very clean, as is the text block. Overall a very good ++ copy of this rare book.
