THIS IS A COPY OF

'BUBBLES IN BIRDLAND' BY HAROLD SIMPSON. ILLUSTRATED BY G.E.SHEPHEARD.

PUBLISHED BY GREENING & CO. LTD., LONDON IN 1908.

THIS IS A RARE BOOK - I CAN FIND RECORDS OF ONLY TWO COPIES ON THE WEB. I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO READ ABOUT IT A LITTLE AND IT WAS WELL KNOWN AND VERY POPULAR, APPARENTLY.

A WONDERFULLY ILLUSTRATED WHIMSICAL TALE WITH A DELIGHTFUL EXPLANATORY PREFACE BY 'THE AUTHORS'.

SADLY, THIS BOOK HAS NO COVER.

I THINK THAT IT WOULD HAVE HAD A PICTORIAL BOARD COVER BUT IT WAS LONG GONE BEFORE I INHERITED IT. I AM LISTING IT, HOWEVER, 'WARTS AND ALL' (AS THEY SAY!) BECAUSE THE ILLUSTRATIONS ARE STYLISH, COLOURFUL AND TYPICAL OF THE ARTIST AND THE AGE AND ALSO THE INSIDE OF THE BOOK IS, SURPRISINGLY, IN VERY GOOD CONDITION. A LITTLE RUBBED AT THE RIGHT HAND EDGE, PARTICULARLY THE LAST PAGE, BUT GENERALLY THIS DAMAGE IS ABSOLUTELY MINIMAL.

EACH PICTURE HAS AN OPPOSITE PAGE CONTAINING TEXT - SOMETIMES A LITTLE STORY, SOMETIMES A VERSE. THE STORIES ARE NONSENSICAL AND HUMOROUS.

THE PAGE SIZE IS 11 X 8 INCHES.

ON THE FRONT IS WHAT REMAINS OF A FLY PAGE WITH THE TITLE SIMPLY PRINTED AND AN INSCRIPTION IN INK - 'TO DEAR ROGER WITH LOVE FROM UNCLE REG 1911'.

MAYBE SOMEBODY WOULD LIKE TO FRAME THE PICTURES FOR A NURSERY, OR JUST ADDTO A COLLECTION. THE ILLUSTRATIONS ARE RATHER MORE COLOURFUL THAN AS DEPICTED BY MY PHOTOGRAPHY!

Thank you for looking!
