A Victorian children's book in a novelty shape, a bobby's helmet, with chromolithograph illustrations; "The Perils of a Policeman or the Victim's Vengeance" written and illustrated by Lewis Novra and printed in Munich, Germany.

This little book has 6 double-sided stiff card pages with 4 colour illustrations, all shown in my photographs. It is in good condition with no creases or tears and measures 5 by about 4.5 inches (13 by 11.25 cm.)

I guarantee that this is a genuine Victorian book and not a later reprint.

The photos can be enlarged for more detail.
