Bumping and rubbing to the book corners with rubbing of the text block edges and text boards. Bumping to the lower back strip edge. The top back strip edge has small splits either side and there is a crease that runs between the two splits. Light browning to the text block edges. Previous owner's sticker to the top right-hand corner of the free front end paper. Colour illustrated dustwrapper, again by Helen Oxenbury, with green titles to the front panel and white titles to the backstrip. Words almost fail on how damaged this dustwrapper is. Chipping, with loss to all dustwrapper corners and backstrip edges. Heavy creasing to the remaining dustwrapper edges and creasing has also occurred to the dustwrapper panels. Numerous small tears to the dustwrapper edges and there is a small triangular piece missing from the top edge of the front dustwrapper panel. The rear dustwrapper panel has come completely away from the rest of the dustwrapper and a previous owner has used tape to repair, supporting and generally holding together the component parts. There is a 4 inch tear to the front fold over crease, lower edge. A selection of predominately English nursery rhymes wonderfully illustrated by Helen Oxenbury.
