This is a gorgeous book that is almost antique and is from the 1920’s – 1930’s era but has an inscribed ink message inside when it was given as a gift in 1935. There is one currently on an auction site and they have listed it as being 1920’s so not entirely sure.

It is hard covered and published by Ward, Lock & Co., Limited – London and Melbourne.

It contains some beautiful illustrations and features quite a lot of illustrations of golliwogs and teddy bears (I have photographed a sample of them). Some of the photo illustrations look to be Australian.

There are approximately 60 pages in total with some ageing as to be expected and there appears to be 1 colour plate missing.

It is a delightful children’s book with lovely illustrations for the collector.
