AUSTIN, Hilda and Leonard COTTERILL (co-authors and illustrators). Young Ern. London; George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd. 1943.

Landscape 8vo.; brown cloth-backed pictorial boards, detailed double-page pictorial endpapers in line; pp. [48] including endpapers; with pictorial title-page and 22 additional full-page coloured plates; a good, sound, copy with scattered brown marking to both covers (more prevalent to lower board) and some overall dust-soiling, internally quite clean with light signs of handling and bruising to upper forecorners.
First edition. An interesting wartime juvenile in which a young farm boy falls asleep and casts himself as a (rather vulnerable and sentimental) soldier in uniform, in his dream. The story features a golliwogg toy.
