    nd. 192 p. 28 cm. Over 170 illustrations, 28 of which are coloured, and 20 more of which have been coloured by a previous little owner. One full page coloured plate called "Fun on the Farm" with chips on edge. Orange cloth hardcover with pictorial paper boards. Corners worn, shelf wear, some soiling to boards, tear in rear hinge at lower spine. Ink inscription from 1932 on front pastedown. Lettering on title page coloured in. Rough edges to title page and lower corner chipped. Pencil crayon on following endpaper. Minor thumbing and a few spots throughout. Small chip in p. 159. Obviously thoroughly enjoyed by a previous little owner. Interesting view into a bygone age: Maurice and his Daddy are returning to England from India; Tom has a nightmare about his sister's golly; Indians come to get scalps for their wigwam, etc. Every miniature story is about a different child with a different name.
