by Strong, Roy C

Condition: Very Good


London: Victoria & Albert Museum. Pictorial Card Covers. 0905209346 168pp. There is a fascinating inscription to the half title page, reading: 'Given to me by H. M. The Queen Mother Clarence House July 8th 1983'. There is no signature from the Queen Mother & no way of ascertaining who the recipient is. The text is accompanied by mostly b/w plates of various Tudor artists. There are a few soil specks to the half title page & the last page of the index. There is some shelf wear to the card covers - most noticeable to the corner of the front cover. Clean and tight. A lovely book with a fascinating royal connection. . Very Good. 1983. First Edition.

Michael Bond - the man behind Paddington Bear

"All the same ... it's a very important name. And I don't expect there are many bears in the world called Paddington!"
