vintage Black Beauty book, 1927 edition, Edwin John Prittie illustrations, Hardcover Anna Sewell classic

It's getting harder to find copies of this beautiful old 1927 hardbound edition of Black Beauty with the gorgeous full color and b&w illustrations of Edwin John Prittie.

The pasted illustration on the cover is a bit chippy, and the cloth hardcover is bumped, frayed, and worn, which all give this book just the right amount of vintage charm. Perfect for displaying or reading.

The book and cover are intact, although the cover is a bit wobbly and loose.

The title page bears a lovely inscription: "To Alice, from Daddy, Xmas 1930"

The next page bears Alice's full name and address, in her penmanship:
Alice (I cannot make out last name)
541 (542?) Hancock Street
Brooklyn, New York

The binding/webbing is visible from top to bottom on that page.

The List of Illustrations page and the following page (Introduction) both have a 1/2" tears at the top.

The pages are tanned and there is minor soiling on some interior pages but nothing that in any way interferes with the reading enjoyment of this lovely old book.

The printing in this book is a bit larger than average.
