BRIGGS, Raymond (author and illustrator). Father Christmas Goes On Holiday. London; Hamish Hamilton. 1975.
Slim 4to.; original laminated pictorial boards, illustrated to both covers, in repeat dustwrapper; pp. ; illustrated throughout in full colour in cartoon-strip format; a very good clean copy, both externally and internally, with a little unobtrusive scratching to upper cover, in clean pictorial dustwrapper with a few light score marks, a couple of faint tide marks to the reverse, not visible on the right side, and one, again unobtrusive, diagonal crease to bottom edge.
First edition, first printing. Another glimpse into the life of Briggs' popular, if cantankerous, and grumpy, recreation of every child's hero. A sequel to the modern classic Father Christmas (1973): Where does Father Christmas go, to get away from it all?
