Ewell, Surrey, U.K. : Studley Press, [1946]. Series: Tally-ho books for children ; no. 12. Obong quarto, publisher’s leather-backed pictorial yellow boards (slightly bowed towards the front, lightly marked on front and back and some wear along the edges), colour illustrated endpapers, 31 pp, full-page illustrations of animals to rectos (including the kangaroo and koala), text on each animal to versos, contents clean and sound, a very good copy. The bizarre aspect to this selection is the inclusion of negroes, Eskimos and Red Indians. Trier is best known as the illustrator of Erich Kästner’s children’s books.
