In absolutely excellent condition for an antique title of well over 100 years old. Here is a copy of Stories From Seven Old Favourites published in 1912 by The Waverley Book Company of London as part of a series of books for children called The Children’s Hour in 8 volumes, with this volume being Volume 5 and this is a first edition. Some of the other volumes contain myths, legends, fairy tales and true stories of adventure and exploration (several of these I have for sale separately at time of writing). A beautifully illustrated collection of extracts from the following:

Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan; Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe; Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift; Don Quixote by Cervantes; The Arabian Nights; The Travels of Baron Munchausen and Tales From Shakespeare by Charles and Mary Lamb.

The pages are excellent being clean, bright and crisp. The top closed edge is shiny gilt. With sixteen colourful illustrations and charming illustrated endpapers (see photos). There also delightful illustrations in the margins.

Attractively bound in bright blue cloth covered boards. In top order. The front board has a colourful paste down illustration and sparkly gilt titles.

The cloth and gilt on the spine have faded just very slightly in comparison to the boards.

Your antique copy of Modern Stories 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 22.5 cm x W 16.5 cm, 442 pages, 0.93 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 full protective packaging, please add a note to the order.
