Alick’s Adventures

Alick’s Adventures by G.R.

Illustrated with 8 plates by John Hassall, the first of which has come loose along with the protective tissue. Bother.

Longmans, Green and co, 1902. First edition.

8vo. Hardback with decorated front board and spine. No dust jacket.

G.R. is a mystery to me, but John Hassall was the creator of the “Jolly Fisherman” poster for Skegness, which he drew in 1908.

This one is sometimes tricky to track down, but usually reasonable when you do.

My copy is tatty and, as I said, the frontispiece has come away, but it’s perfectly bright and readable, and only cost me a tenner on abebooks.

You might be lucky on amazon: Alick’s Adventures
