24 pp. Extremely light wear to upper edges of covers. All else as new. "In December 1844 Heinrich Hoffman, a Frankfurt doctor, wanted to buy his three-year-old son a picture book as a Christmas present, but could find only 'long tales, stupid collections of pictures, moralising stories, beginning and ending with admonitions like "The good child must be truthful" or "Children must keep clean".' Instead, he bought a blank exercise book and set out to write and draw what was to become his world-famous picture book."
