Illustrator Ward, P. R..
Publisher London J. M. Dent
Date 1942
Book ID 37987


Reprint of revised edition. War-time decorated limp cloth in original unclipped green dust-wrapper. Endpaper maps, x+101pp., charming b/w illustrations throughout. A very good bright copy. Dust-wrapper just a little chipped at top edge, very mild unobtrusive foxing to cloth edges. Humorous drawings and quaint phraseology depict a studiously uncritical portrayal of “abroad” during the inter-war period. The Brush Up series, first published in Rothermere’s Daily Mail, is a fascinating reflection of certain British perspectives at the time.
