The extremities are just a trifle bumped and rubbed. The endpapers are heavily discolored at the hinges, and the pages are toned.

Although most known for his books for children, Milne was also a novelist and playwright. Milne's Toad of Toad Hall is the first dramatization of Grahame's Wind in the Willows.
