WITH NICE CLEAN APPEARANCE- ATTRACTIVEI................. These fragile little hard paper-covered books have received much collector attention in recent years. Due to their nature and due to their having been a child's book subject to the normal wear that that entails these are usually found in only fair to good condition. Toning is an unavoidable consequence of the cheap acid paper used and of the books age. Very good condition copies are genuinely scarce and command a significant premium in the marketplace. Fine copies are almost never seen. Hey consist of a story page and a facing comic strip type panel on each odd-even pair of pages. These wonderful books were wildly popular and firmly established the Whitman publishing house. It is sad that so few have survived to the present day.

Michael Bond - the man behind Paddington Bear

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!"

A lonely toy bear on an empty shop shelf on Christmas Eve in 1956 first captured the attention of Michael Bond, who kindly shared Paddington with the world.
