In good condition. Here is a super vintage copy of The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. Published in June 1960 by William Heinemann, London and still in the scarce original dust wrapper. With eight delightful colour plates by the revered Art Nouveau illustrator Charles Robinson (see photos). It is hard to come by vintage copies of The Secret Garden, they tend to get snapped up straight away.

Inside the pages are clean, bright and tightly bound. With tanning and spotting to the closed outside edges and tanning to the endpapers. With lovely illustrated endpapers and decorated title page. Has a purple school stamp on the front free endpaper (see photos), but no other writing or markings of previous ownership. All eight colour plates are present as called for, and in good condition.

The unclipped dust wrapper is clean, smart and un-faded. With some tears and chips to the corners and spine ends, and some light creasing. It has now been protected for the future by the addition of a removable plastic sleeve.

Your vintage copy of The Secret Garden will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon* and sent well packaged. I am always happy to add a gift card with a message to the parcel.

H 20.5 cm x W 14 cm, 298 pages, 0.32 kg. I dispatch worldwide daily from the UK. With the exception of a small number of countries.

* If you would prefer for your book not to be decoratively wrapped but sent simply in the protective packaging please add a note to the order.
