Little Obelia: Further Adventures of Ragged Blossom Snugglepot and Cuddlepie.

Sydney: Angus & Robertson, 1933.

The popularity of Gibbs’ “gumnut” series ensured that many subsequent editions would enter the market in different formats: this sequel to Little Ragged Blossom appeared in the Gumnut Reader series (but with the Angus & Robertson imprint) along with all the other titles in the series. [Muir, 2759]

The format preserves the full text and all of the images from the original work, although reduced to black & white for swifter production and cost effectiveness. Such ephemeral material, especially produced for the demands of the nursery, is often hard to find.

Item #1626

Octavo, 77 pp., with a frontispiece and illustrations throughout, with two instances of juvenile handcolouring (but minor); well restored original wrappers, otherwise very good.

Price (AUD): $125.00  other currencies
