b&w frontispiece. Boards bumped, a bit edge-worn & soiled, binding shaken; else gd. Small 8vo, pp. 252, . Two colour interwoven floral design to front boards, with gilt lettering-possibly designed by Talwin Morris. The front free endpaper has been removed. The next page (preceding the half-title page) contains a list of "Famous Books for Boys and Girls", and on which appears an ink signature, and initials as well as the remains of tape. The first and second signatures of the book are a bit loose at the bottom. The twelve page publisher's catalogue at the end contains an extensive list of Blackie's publications, including the works of G.A. Henty. The presence of two green dots, twice, on the spine, as well as the design on the front board, the date of publication, and the publisher, suggest that this may be a Talwin Morris design (Morris died in 1911), although we do not represent it as such.
