KASTNER, Erich Emil and the Detectives with an Introduction by Walter de la Mare

Cape, 1931.

First UK edition. 8vo. Yellow cloth with lettering and vignettes in black, in the rare original printed dustwrapper. Illustrated by De La Mare with simple, but striking line drawings, some printed onto a yellow background. A near fine copy, stain to fore-edge, in a very good dustwrapper, light wear to the head of the spine and a short closed tear to the base. A very attractive example of a rarity.

The first Emil book, a fabulous adventure story for children, which is most uncommon.
