HEWARD, Constance (author). Lilian GOVEY (illustrator). Grandpa and the Tiger. London, George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd. 1924.

8vo. Original donkey brown paper-covered boards with full-size pictorial label to upper cover, double-page pictorial endpapers; pp. [64], on coated stock; an elegant pictorial title-page, 30 charming coloured plates, and 2 pictorial vignettes throughout as running borders; a near fine copy with minimal rubbing and external dusting.
First edition. An extraordinary, totally unsentimental, children's story which reflects a different age. Toby, his Grandfather, and their housekeeper Glum, are stunned by the arrival of a tiger in their garden. Various ruses are employed to subdue it and trap it and, let us simply say, it does not end well for the big cat.
