Housed in its original printed box, this is a beautiful copy with bright white cloth binding and no wear to the spine, corners or edges. There is some occasional light spotting otherwise the interior pages are bright and clean. This is an exceptional, above average copy of this fragile item.

The box tray is very sound, the box lid is split at two corners and about 5 inches along the top.

"This is the seventh book in a regular series of Mr. Gibson's published drawings... Each book contains eighty-four of Mr. Gibson's best cartoons, and all are uniform in size, shape and binding."

The book is bound with a white cloth spine and paper covered boards with beveled edges and an illustrated front cover. The book is housed in a two part gift box (tray and lid) repeating the book cover illustration.
