Second printing of the 1934 first edition. Publisher's original light brown mottled paper covered boards with illustration and titles in green to the upper board and spine, in dustwrapper. Illustrated with 16 plates in black and white (on gloss paper) and line drawings in black throughout the text by Dorothy Wall. A very good copy, the binding square and firm with some rubbing and bumping to the spine tips and corners, the boards bright and fresh. The contents, with heavy toning to the half title and final page, are otherwise clean throughout. Complete with the rubbed and nicked dustwrapper that has a few closed tears at the fold corners (secured with tape to the underside). An attractive example, distinctly uncommon in the dustwrapper.

The second of the New Zealand born author and illustrator's books to feature the anthropomorphic koala Blinky Bill. (Muir 7825).
