The 1st UK paperback edition
Kerr, Judith ~ The Tiger Who Came To Tea
Picture Lions, London : 1973
The First UK printing of the paperback edition published by Picture Lions, London in 1973. The BOOK is in Very Good++ condition. The binding remains title and internally the book is very clean. Just a hint of edge wear to the covers with a 6cm split to the lower spine fold but the covers and binding remain tight. A previous owner's name to the blank inside of the front upper cover and a mild crease to the upper corner of some of the pages. Otherwise a remarkably preserved copy of the first UK soft-back printing. The hardback version having been published by William Collins five years earlier. A children's classic title wonderfully illustrated in colour throughout by Judith Kerr. Protected in a loose Mylar archival cover.
