Historically remarkable pictorial humorous references in a children's book. Mr. pig drinks too much and gets drunk in public as well smokes a cigarette as he walks around town and digs in his yard.

Binding gently age worn, joints slightly scuffed, some light overall soiling and small stains from handling, remains overall attractive as an object. Book presents well in a cute binding.

Text block paper is gently toned, light to moderate scattered age spotting, internally still well preserved, tight, sound.

Still attractive on the shelf. Book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
