I am selling this quite rare and beautiful book - The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett and illustrated by Charles Robinson.

This edition was published in 1935 and contains 8 lovely full colour full page illustrations each covered in protective tissue paper with the title of the picture on each one. The condition of this book is good ...the spine is sound and the pages are well secured and not weak as with some older books. There is a little bit of wear on the inside of the from cover as in picture no ..6... There are a couple of brown speaks on several of the pages bit very little and does not detract from the quality of the item. The very back page also has a bit of discolouration but quite good for the age of the book. (Picture No. 7) Also very small amount of discolouration of the edges of the pages in some cases but very slight - I have only mentioned this so that potential bidders receive as much information as possible, however the item is very good considering it is now approx 75 years old. I am willing to send more pictures via email if any requests them. Green hardback with nice detailed work on the spine and a black etched picture of a girl with flowers on the front over . Lovely book for a collector or just to own the coloured illustrations which are valuable in themselves.
