180pp. Duodecimo [19 cm] Red paper covered boards with a woven pattern, a white ink stamped title on the spine, and the publisher's device stamped in white ink on the front cover. With the pictorial dust jacket, listing the "Newest Cock Robin Hits" on the rear panel. Very good. The edges of the spine and covers are lightly bumped and rubbed. There is a very faint 4" bend in the rear board. The pages are browned. The dust jacket is in very good condition. Mildly age-toned, rubbed and creased. The jacket is also subtly foxed, and has minor traces of soiling. The top edge of the rear panel has areas of insect nibbling.
