Landscape 4to. Original green cloth-backed pictorial boards with wrap-around design to both covers; pp. [32]; with colour-lithographed map sections and images throughout, most double-page; an uncommonly clean and bright copy with minimal edge-wear and small bruising to forecorners; internally shaken, but secure, and very clean and crisp throughout; elusive in any edition, especially in this condition.
Sixth edition; first published in 1948. An unusual introduction to orienteering for the young which follows two children on a country walk. The book incorporates enlarged sections of a map with an accompanying double-page spread featuring the part of the trip covered and links the symbols on the page to the features they experience in the landscape.
