1 Mickle, Alan D. The Trio from Rio ... and Other Quaint Folk
Melbourne Robertson & Mullens Ltd. 1942 First limited Hard Cover Good Poor Armstrong 
119 pp. Considerable wear and tear to unclipped dj; spine panel is missing. Foxing and browning to edges of text block. Edgewear to beige boards. Occasional foxing throughout, otherwise unmarked. Solidly bound. Illustrated with 18 b/w drawings by Armstrong. No. 47 of 50 copies ("of which only forty copies numbered from 11-50 are for sale.") Signed on limitation page by Alan Mickle and (very decoratively) Armstrong. Beneath the signatures there is an inscription to the Australian photographer Jack Cato from Mickle, signed and dated 1946. "It is part of the author's mischievous and whimsical method in describing "The Trio from Rio" to state that he does not know whether it is a grown-up's book for children or a children's book for grown-ups, but most readers will agree that children of all ages between seven and seventy and older still and younger too will enjoy this, whether they be soldiers in camp, or parents glad of the excuse to read it to their children." 
Price: 50.00 AUD
