104pp. Duodecimo [18.5 cm] Brown cloth covered boards with a gilt stamped title on the front board, and blind stamped decorative borders on the covers. Good plus. The extremities are rubbed and the spine is faded. The spine ends and corners of the covers are gently bumped, and the underlying boards are peeking through at the corners. There is a previous owner's bookplate covering a library label on the front pastedown (the only library marking), and there is a thin crack in the front endsheet along the hinge. The pages are clean, and the text block is sturdy.
Short biographies of John Tanner, Daniel Tyler and Newel Knight intended for younger readers. Flake 7599.
