Vintage hardback book: Daily Mail Annual for Girls. Edited by Susan French, printed in Great Britain by Morrison and Gibb Ltd, London and Edinburgh.
This Daily Mail annual features a large collection of stories, articles, craft projects, and puzzles, all printed on a wonderful textured paper and combined with beautiful black-and-white or coloured tinted illustrations. There are also some full-page colour illustrations featuring animals and fashion history.
The inside cover reads: "In this book are stories about animals, schoolgirl adventures, mystery and many other tales of special Interest to girls".
The book is in reasonable condition for its age, but it does have some damage to the spine, and the dust sheet is quite marked. There is also an owners name and address written inside, along with some doodles and completed crossword puzzles in both pen and pencil.
Dimensions: length 24cm, width 17cm.
