An amusing book containing a number of short stories and 32 cartoon
illustrations making this a very pleasant read. A 1st edition

The green outer cover is in sound condition although the spine and
parts of the front and rear boards have faded due to sun light
whilst the book has been on a shelf. There is also slight marking
on the outer part of the rear board. The title shown on the spine
is gilt lettering and Mr Punch is also shown in gilt on the front

perfectly legible. Overall this is a firm copy.
