This book has been professionally resewn with new front and rear end sheets that closely match the original. The book is tightly bound and square. The book pages are bright for the age of the book. The book has a decorative frontispiece picture which is covered by a tissue guard. The front end sheet and the frontispiece picture and the page after show light foxing - but the body of the book shows nearly no foxing. The book has gold gilt top edges. I noticed one page that had a small tear to the bottom of the page (page 33/34) . The covers are very clean and the gold gilt decoration on the front cover is very bright. The spine of the book has been replaced with matching green leather and the original spine and it's gold gilt title have been removed. Very collectible book.

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!"
