Light bumping to top and tail of spine and corners. Name and date in ink to front endpaper. A few small ink splashes to outer page edges, parts of which go a little through onto page margins. Some foxing. Wrapper is a little faded in places, with edge-tears and chips; little loss to a few corners; some grubby marks, small damp mark to rear panel. This is 1st edition wrapper - because the 'd' is slightly shorter than the '6' on the price on front flap.

Secret passages, old forgotten copper-mines on the island, men hidden there doing strange things. a path under the sea-bed itself - there are no end to the adventures that the four children have, Then there is Kiki, the parrot, whose ridiculous chatter delights the children and who shares in their amazing adventures.
