A super vintage edition of The Hundred and One Dalmatians by Dodie Smith. Originally published in 1956, this is an early UK edition by The Reprint Society of London from 1964. A scarce and collectable edition with far more illustrations than the early US editions. The delightful drawings are by Janet and Anne Grahame-Johnstone (see photos). The book and contents are in super condition. With the original dust wrapper - which has some wear and small areas of loss (detailed below), but otherwise is also lovely, smart and un-faded.

In more detail: the contents are clean, bright and tightly bound. This copy has not been written in and there are no other markings of previous ownership. The endpapers themselves are a lovely montage of the story's setting.

Green cloth covered boards are excellent having been well protected by the jacket. They have a silver embossed Dalmatian's head in the centre, and silver lettering. 

The salmon coloured paper jacket has decoration to the front, back and spine. With some nicks and tears to the corners and spine ends. Has some loss to the head of the spine (see photo 2). With another couple of tears up from the bottom edge on the back. Some of the nicks and tears have been reinforced on the reverse side with professional clear bookbinder's tape. Has a faint brown stain mark on the bottom edge of the front of the jacket (see final close-up photo). The jacket has now been protected for the future by the addition of a removable plastic sleeve, and so with a bit of wear but remaining un-faded, smart and presentable.

A charming vintage edition of a children's classic. The Hundred and One Dalmatians 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 15 cm, 191 pages, 0.42 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 and sent simply in the full protective packaging please add a note to the order.
