First edition, first impression, presentation copy inscribed on the dedication page, “+ to Esther with much love, Christmas 1955, from Barbara”. The recipient was Todd’s friend and fellow author Esther Boumphrey – the two had collaborated on books in the 1940s. Signed Worzel Gummidge titles are scarce, and particularly desirable with such a nice association.

Octavo. Original green cloth. With the dust jacket. Frontispiece plate and illustrations in the text. Some faint marks to cloth, edges spotted, a very good copy in the lightly marked and rubbed jacket.
