Product description

The Children's Treasure Book (Collins, c.1950s) - vintage children's story book
 
This original c.1950s vintage children's story book with board covers - the front cover design (by Yvonne Perrin) featuring two children and a puppy on a raft playing "pirates" whilst three children look on from a nearby rock - contains stories by various authors, including "The Onion Man" by Jane Shaw and "The Ugly Gnome" by Enid O'Dare, plus a few other items, together with numerous black and white illustrations.
 
Although the book shows various signs of age (see condition description below), it nevertheless remains a complete, fully legible and appealing example of mid-20th century vintage children's literature.
