UHU, published by Rapp & Whiting Ltd, London, 1969. Blue Boards Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. The author and artist Annette Macarthur-Onslow, tells the true story of Uhu’s ‘brief but devastating’ entry into her life after having found him fallen from his nest in a pine tree.
A lovely copy of this children’s first edition. Gilt embossed lettering to the spine. Numerous colour illustrations and line drawings support the text. Clean and tight. One imperfection worth mentioning is what appears to be a small burn mark on the bottom of almost every page, likely from the book being close to a candle. Here is a close-up image to show an example of this.
