Item specifics

Seller notes: The book is only in acceptable condition with wear and damage to the outer boards, and loose text block, a couple of inscriptions, numerous small tears and some wear and grubby marks to pages - but all intact, and the illustrations by G W Goss are lovely. A first edition from 1946.
Subject: Children's Printing Year: 1946
Format: Hardback Special Attributes: 1st Edition
"Ever since Reggie had been a little boy, so small that he could hardly toddle down the garden path, he had, like all other little boys, wanted a bicycle. The fact that he could not manage to control his two feet on the ground made no matter - he was perfectly sure that, once on the bicycle, he would be all right. The time came when it had to be admitted that Reggie was at last old enough to have a bicycle. The story that follows tells of his adventures with the one his uncle bought him, which, all unknown to anybody at the time, was a magic bicycle......"

Our copy of the book is a hardback with matt paper covered boards and cloth spine, published in 1946 by Hammond, Hammond and Co. and is a first edition. There is a lot of wear, paper loss and rubbing to the edges and corners of the coverand it is a bit grubby and marked. The cloth of the spine has faded too. Internally the text block is loose, but still attached with splits and the webbing showing through. There is an inscription and a couple of small tears to the endpapers. A few pages have small tears down the margins, and there are small marks here and there throughout too. Page 93 has a small triangular-shaped piece missing from the bottom margin. Some creasing to pages. All the delightful illustrations by G W Goss are present - there are five full-page colour illustrations, and many smaller colour and black and white ones. The book is not quite as bad as it sounds, but is definitely not one for the collector.
