B&W Illustrations; 255 pages; A new book with bumped spine ends and a dust wrapper with very light edgewear and rubbing. ; Mary Poppins returns to Number Seventeen Cherry-Tree Lane, London in a fireworks rocket during the Guy Fawkes' celebration. She is just in time as the five Banks children have grown rather wild without a nanny. Their adventures with the magical, but firm, nanny in this book involve the Marble Boy, Peppermint Horses and the Cat That Looked at the King. This is a reprint of the original US edition. Some of the illustratio ns were done by Agnes Sims because WWII restrictions prevented the arrival of the original Shepard illustrations. The illustrator, Mary Shepard, was the daughter of E.H. Shepard who did the illustrations for the Winnie the Pooh books and Wind in the Willows amongst others. 'Travers chose Mary Shepard as the illustrator for her Mary Poppins books when she saw a hand-drawn Christmas card Mary had done. Shepard was a graduate of the Slade School of Art, and was married to E.V. Knox, the editor of Punch, the British humor magazine.' Recommended.; Published @ $18.00.
