Author Mayer,Henry J.
PlacePub London
Publisher Grant Richards/ New York Dutton & Co.
Date 1901
Illustrations Chromolith plates to face every text page by Henry J. Mayer.
Description Landscape quarto red cloth spined chromolith boards (slightly marked/edges shelf worn but cover illustration bright) 127pp printed one side of leaf only but pagination includes the versos. Probably recased - the book is too large and heavy for the covers and this format often gives problems. Possibly newer endpapers but now neat, first text page has some loss of a few letters where page holed and half title has small corner loss. Other edge tears and one long tear (repaired on the blank side of illustration with archival white paper tape), some other repairs but no loss and not affecting the chromoliths. One endpaper and one other leaf creased and a few finger marks etc. *Story of a Japanese doll who longs to see the world. Due to a careless little girl and the jealous dog of her owner she is carried away on a balloon which is punctured by a stork who then feels obliged to save her and take her around the world. She meets children of all nations from Africa to America where she rides with a cowgirl, joins a carnival in Italy, climbs the Alps in Switzerland with a Swiss girl and boy, dances to the music of bagpipes in Scotland etc. till at last she is reunited with her friend the mandarin and has lost her wonderlust. Condition sounds worse than it is - a lovely book with fine illustrations.
