Seller notes: very old scarce Childrens Book called Romps.
Publisher:

Blackie & Sons

Format:

Hardback

Year:

1940's

This auction is for a scarce childrens book called ROMPS .. its published by Blackie & Sons and I think it dates from the late 1940’s. the illustrations are drawn by A. E. Kennedy; Harold [Cecil] Earnshaw. And I think Albert Kay has done one of the coloured pictures.

 

The book measures approx 10 inches  by approx 12 inches, it has 98 pages and 11 colour picture pages. It does not have a dust jacket. It is in a good used condition and as such does show signs of use.

I have tried to nit pick as much as I can .. The front cover has some wear around the edges and has a mark on the boys top, at one time someone has used it as a cutting board as there are some cutting marks on it. there are some creasing waves / marks to front and back cover, the spine is not too bad .. a bit of wear to top and bottom and as expected it has started to fade.. The back cover has a few marks. Internally the book is nice and tight, a previous owner has written their name on the back of one of the coloured pages.  Between the inside front cover and the first blank page is a partial split in the hinge part. Brown marks / foxing throughout book. One of the colour illustrations is only two-thirds attached another two have an approx 3cm tear along hinge. One page has an approx 1cm tear by the hinge, one page has two approx  1cm pencil lines. Several pages have a small split at bottom of hinge approx 1.5cm.    lastly on the back of the first blank page there is an approx 1.5cm piece of paper that is coming away from the page ( nothing drastic. ).  A great book needing a new home.
