EINZIG, Suzanne (illustrator). Norah PULLING (author). Mary Belinda and the ten aunts. London; Transatlantic Arts Ltd. .
Small square 8vo. Original mid-brown cloth lettered in white to upper cover, pictorial endpapers, preserved in pictorial dustwrapper; pp. ; beautifully and strikingly illustrated throughout with single-, and double-page, lithographed plates in alternate full colour and monochrome; a fine, fresh copy, both externally and internally, and uninscribed, protected by a near fine, price-clipped dustwrapper with tiny nicking to head and a little light overall dusting.
First edition, also issued in pale blue cloth and in pictorial boards, with no precedence known. A deservedly popular and quirky book in rhyme about a young girl, Mary Belinda, who eventually escapes the strictures of her ten fearsome aunts (who each look like Mary Poppins) as she tries to have fun on the beach.
