Card Good+ 
G++; 4to; Flexible card covers; top inch of spine has tear; This book gives us the minimum of information as to its production! No author, no publishing details, Merely 'Produced and printed entirely in the British Isles'. It is a story told in rhyme about a trip to a farm. It begins Bumpety-bump go the wheels of the train, We're nearly there cries Jack; I can see a bit of the station says sue, so reach the bags from the rack; It is illustrated throughout in shades of rust, orange black and white - and this has been just occasionally 'helped' quite tastefully & neatly by its previous owner. The age of the book is I would estimate around the 1930s - the dogs certainly have very non politically correct names that people could find offensive. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall
