Oxford University Press, n.d. [1930]
"Herbert Strang's Library"
12mo, 256pp
Colour frontis and 4 illustrations (dated 1929)

This is a pocket abridged edition for reading on the train. The print quality for the illustrations was poor, not what you'd expect from Oxford University Press. Compare the reproductions for The Goodieman's Whistle, Oxford UP 1935, which are of very good quality.
