The Golliwoggs Auto-Go-Cart by Florence Upton: First Edition with dust jacket.
This children’s book of The Golliwoggs Auto-Go-Cart is exceptionally good condition and it is rare to find a dust jacket in these Golliwogg series of books.
Illustrated hard covers with green cloth spine in fine condition. Colours are very bright and no marks on the covers. Typical swan and ship illustrated free pages with no marks. Bindings split but the edition holds well. Verses and coloured illustrations are bright, clean and tidy. A few tiny tears on the last two pages but this is an exceptionally fine condition edition. 66 printed pages. 11″ x 9″. Oblong 4to.
Dust jacket is grey plain colour with a darkened spine. It is labelled “Price Two shillings & Sixpence Net” on the front. The rear cover has thirteen other Golliwogg books listed. Pencil marks against some book titles. The dust jacket is clean with a few tears and chips. Small piece missing from the bottom of the spine but otherwise in very good condition. The jacket is protected by a clear film. The dust jacket is from a later printing as it has titles advertised later than this edition was published. However, to find a dust jacket for this children’s book is very rare.
