Description

Rupert and Dapple, by Mary Tourtel. Super Vintage Hardback Children's story book from the 1970s, the Rupert Little Bear Library number 10.

These sweet vintage Rupert Bear books were published for the famous English company Woolworth's by Sampson Low, Marston & Co., Ltd of London in the 1970's specially for children.

The "Rupert and Dapple" story is a wonderful tale of Rupert and his adventures with a beautiful Dapple Grey Horse along with elves and pixies, princes and even a giant!

Each delightful Rupert the Bear Tale is illustrated throughout on every page with the original Mary Tourtel line drawings of Rupert and his various friends that feature in each story.

Every story is told in verse that makes them such fun to read to your children.

This Rupert Little Bear Library series that was published in the 1970's eventually had 18 stories in total published between 1973 to 1975 and were available exclusively from Woolworth's stores in England.

Copies are becoming quite scarce and difficult to find in good condition and it is great fun to collect the entire run as there were only 18 of these Rupert Books in total.

Size 7.5" inches x 5" inches.

Please see my Etsy Store: http://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/KittysTales for more delightful Vintage Children's Books and Vintage and Rare Collectable Books.

*Condition*

This is Fresh from the Attic in Excellent Vintage Condition. Text block is tight and spine very good. Boards are still glossy, corners slightly bumped but not worn. The thick paper pages are tanned typical of this style of 1970's book. A few little creases and small age marks and a little bit of age spotting and tanning to the text block but pages inside are good and clean just mellowed to a nice parchment colour.

No inscriptions, writing or graffiti of any kind in the book!

As good a condition as ever found for these Rupert Books.

Priced accordingly.

Please Contact me if you want multiple items and I will calculate the cheapest shipping cost possible for you.

UK buyers up to 2kg of books can be shipped for £4.78

If overseas please remember I will do my best but books are heavy.

Any questions just ask!

I was thrilled to receive and read this exquisitely wrapped, beautiful edition of a literary tour-de-force, which is in very good condition.

Kitty's service was exceptional. She is to be commended for her work in cultivating continued interest in, and preserving, vintage editions of literary treasures, especially in an age of increased digitisation.
