HISTOIRE DE BABAR LE PETIT ELEPHANT
Illustrated by Jean De Brunhoff
Published by Editions Du Jardin Des Modes. 1st. 1931
Almost very good condition. Large format. Blue cloth spine, orange boards with picture of Babar to front. Colour illustrations. Text in French.
Uneven fading to covers with scuffing and score marks; some loss to top paper cover. It appears that the book has been repaired and strengthened with a new spine, but original laid down and retaining original endpapers and covers. Some uneven fading to cloth spine and fraying to top and tail (of old cloth). The repair has made the binding nice and tight and secure. Page edges of quite a number of pages throughout have a 'nibbled' look. Front endpaper has some scuffing and holes, with a bit of loss. Foxing and marks to varying degrees throughout the book.
