First Edition / First Impression.
We have a wonderful FIRST EDITION / FIRST IMPRESSION of Paddington Takes the Air available today, in which a trip to the dentist turns into the adventure of a lifetime, and Paddington exercises his talent for turning sticky situations into resounding triumphs.
Most of the big rare booksellers will price a first edition, first impression of this story between £100 and £200, typically. We are pricing this copy at £65 because the original dust jacket has been price clipped and there are some marks to the cover. But otherwise this is an excellent clean copy with all interior pages pristine and unmarked. Would make a great gift for any fans of Paddington. Or dentophobes. Which is a word we never even knew existed…
