Product description

The brown hardback cover is bent at the corners, with 5 notable bumps along the edges, of which, 3 have caused some of the acrylic-type cloth coating to crack off. The coating has
also cracked off around the corner bends, it is worn along the spine, and is
worst at the headbands. The spine showcases red embossed text with the authors
name and the name of the book, as repeated on the front cover. On the front is
an embossed illustration, displaying the refined palettes and minimalistic
design of the era. The male figure in this scene has some damage to the eye
area.

The fore-edge is browned and  foxed. When closed and viewing the fore-edge from the above you can see the slightest waves, possibly from some light moisture damage. This is also evident
on the pastedown and fly leaf where there is a bumpier texture to the paper. On
the opening flyleaf multi-age class is written in ink pen. There are slightly
browner marks throughout the pages where finger marks etc. seemed to have
darkened over time. There are other odd marks including small watermarks and
light foxing throughout. Pages 189-194 have open tears on the top right hand
corners, though this has only cut through margins, no text is affected. On the
final page there are two small numbers stamped 19 and 14, again not
obstructing the text. Written on the back flyleaf is the number 65 in pencil.


Author, cinematographer, and artist, Nikolay Nosov shaped the world of childrens literature in the Soviet Union throughout the 20th century, creating famed characters such as Duno. This first edition of Jolly Family is an excellent insight to Nosovs writing, his unique historical context, and the print culture of the time.
