First edition, first impression of this South African classic. Colour frontis and 22 full page illustrations as called for and vignette illustrations to almost every page. Including the famous dung beetle in reverse to page 65. An error not unique to only the first edition. Some older tissue repairs to closed tears of a few pages. Spine rebacked with original layed over. Some dulling to the gilt titles of the front board. Fep splitting, with a newspaper article about the dung beetle taped to it. Previous owner’s name to the fep and verso of frontis. Overall a presentable copy of the true first editon.
