Product description

The
book is in fair condition. The binding is sound, aside from an illustrated plate,
which is completely loose. The dust cover is damaged, with some small rips at
the top of the spine about 5mm in length, a tear at the bottom right of the
front cover around 30mm in length and a large portion missing at the base of
the spine, about 60x 60mm, as a result the board underneath has faded from a
dark blue to a beige. The dust cover also contains some folds and
discolouration. The text block contains some mottling and a few dark spots
throughout the book. There is some shelf damage to the board, however this it
is still striking, beautiful cover.

'Dr. Allen, who in youth had been befriended by a stranger, felt obliged to adopt
his benefactor's grandchildren, when they were left unprovided for, to the
great wrath of his wife, an imaginary invalid, and the huge delight of his only
daughter, unselfish little Midge. The adopted children had a hard time with
querulous Mrs. Allen, but their devotion to the doctor kept them patient. All the
characters are clearly defined without the author having to describe them.
Being real people they speak for themselves.'
