THE THREE MULLA-MULGARS. Walter De la Mare. THE THREE MULLA-MULGARS.
London: Duckworth & Co. 1910. First edition, lacking the tipped-in errata slip and in the assumed remainder green binding.

An animal fable of three royal monkeys who travel to find their missing father, and their adventures along the way. This has to be the nicest copy of this book extant. There is very minor foxing on page edges and close to hinges on endpapers, and a small name written on front endpaper, otherwise very fine in dust jacket. An almost new copy.
