FIRST EDITION, 8vo, pp. [ii], 86. Original pictorial boards backed in grey cloth, first issue dustjacket reproducing the same illustration as the front board, with ad for ‘Next Door Neighbours’ on rear panel. Hinges cracking a bit but strong, dustjacket lightly soiled, with chipping to spine ends and a few edge-tears and creases particularly near the folds.
The first collection of the Little Orphan Annie comic strips (comprising strips that had appeared in newspapers in 1925). Later printings are only distinguishable by the presence of ads for later-published works on the rear of the dustjacket, which is a scarce survival in any condition.
