The text paper is a laid paper with trimmed head edge and the fore / tail edge edges are untrimmed with some being deckled. The interior illustration s (head pieces, illuminated letters, and illustrated title page) are crisp and very clean. Warmly inscribed and dated by the author on the front free end paper to "Happy" - Eva Addison, a librarian of the author's acquaintance. Loosely laid in are the following: 1 - a signed 6" x 4" b/w photo of Charles G. D Roberts inscribed to Eva Addison, 2 - a signed and dated b/w passport photo of Charles G. D. Roberts inscribed to "Happy" with a personal note on the back, 3 - a hand written note on 2 sides of a 3" x 5" card to Mrs. Addison from Wilson MacDonald, 4 - a 4" x 3" b/w photo of "Happy" with some visiting VIP's (her term) and asundry children, 5 - a Christmas card to a Mr. J. A. (?) from "ever your friend", Charles G. D. Roberts dated 1932. All of the ephemera is a in very good condition or better. The book itself shows a mildly sunned spine, one quite minor tear on the high side of the front joint (middle) in the paper fold and a small pea size blemish on the front cover. The original slip cover is present and shows mild shelf wear with some soiling. It would certainly appear that "Happy", Mrs Eva Addison treasured this book.; Signed by Author
