Welcome to my auction for this slightly scarce first edition, second impression of 'Tommy The Tugboat' by Dora Thatcher,and illustrated by Biro, and was published by Brockhampton in 1959. The first impression was published in 1956.

The book is sadly without dustjacket, with blue board covers, blind decorated with Scottie dogs in squares, and with red titling and detail to spine.

It is a clean copy, though ex-school library as stamped to the inner cover, but has otherwise clean tidy pages throughout.

As the photo's hopefully show, there is a little folding of pages to the lower inner corner, for the first four or so pages, but the binding is otherwise clean and solid.
