Sledges to the Rescue - ,

Hamish Hamilton, 1963.

First edition. 8vo. Pictorial boards in matching pictorial dustwrapper. Illustrated in line throughout by Briggs.

One of the first of his books both written and illustrated by Briggs, this charming story concerns Ernie the Milkman who is helped to complete his milk round on Christmas Day by a group of children. The character of Ernie is based on Briggs' father Ernest, also a milkman for the Co-op, who Briggs used to help out on his rounds as a child.
