Pale green paper-covered boards, with darker green titling to the spine and fairy illustration to the front board. The board edges have a little discolouration and the head/tail of the spine are bumped/a little crushed due to storage and the fragility of the type of publication, but overall corners are sound, and the covers are tight and clean. In the original dustjacket, BUT it is in a somewhat worn condition. The dustjacket is a little grubby, with some loss to the spine ends and the corners, and there is a further triangular area of loss to the top edge of the front panel (the 'H' from SEA-SHORE is missing, and parts of the surrounding 'S' and 'O'). See Images. The original printed price on the spine and on the back panel is 2s, and both prices have been crossed out in red and changed to 1s 6d, (faint on the spine) , this was done by the printer at the time of production. The dustjacket has been neatly repaired/preserved to the reverse of the d/j with clear archive tape, and is now in a new protective clear - removable - bookfilm plastic cover and looks quite good. Internally there is a previous owners' location neatly blind-stamped onto the front free endpaper, and a couple of indented numbers from old pencil marks now erased. Apart from this there are No Inscriptions or other marks, other than foxing (light yellowy brown) spotting to the page fore-edges, and here and there throughout the book, as usual more spotting/patching at the beginning and end of the book. The colour plates are very clean. 6 lovely tipped-in (affixed on one edge only) colour plates of 'sea-shore fairies' and also 20 in-text illustrations in greeny-blue and white, all delightfully illustrated by Margaret Tarrant. Each text page decoratively bordered in greeny-blue. Contains six poems: - "The Shell on the Mantelpiece; Miss Letty; The Littlest Fairy; Once there was a Starfish; The Seaweed Dress, and Dropping Stitches." . All poems relate to these lovely fairies so charmingly depicted by Margaret Tarrant. Overall generally Clean, Tight and Bright copy in the original, if flawed, dustjacket. See IMAGES. ; 16mo 6" - 7" tall. N° de ref. de la librería 113816
