Book Description Angus and Robertson, Sydney, London, 1946. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Fair. GILMORE, D.H (illustrator). 190x250mm. Previous owner's inscription upon front free endpaper and pastedown. Pages are browning with age and showing some fingerprint markings. Illustration plates are bright. Head and tail of spine are lightly bumped. Cloth backed pictorial boards are lightly discoloured and rubbed. Head corner and edge are bumped. Small patch of slightly heavier discolouration at head edge due to damaged dust wrapper. Binding is tidy and neat, this book is in good condition. Dust jacket is discoloured, stained, and showing heavy wear and tear. Three pieces are missing at head and tail of spine, and head edge. Price intact. Some mended tears at front flap. Edges and corners are heavily worn through at some places. Front flap reads 'In The Land of the Talking Trees is a surprising story. Surprising because it is a lively fantasy set against a background of wartime New Guinea. Private Dusty, cut off from his unit in the jungle, is rescued and cared for by Squizzy, one of the Jambies, a little people not more than six inches high. The chief charm of this book lies in its combination of fantasy and realism'. The dustwrapper is covered in archival plastic. *We always describe the faults of our books meticulously but they usually present better than they sound. Bookseller Inventory # CHI098
