320pp & just over the 500g for post. Lofting's story telling are as much a treat as his succinct line art. Doctor Dolittle's Voyages has duotone prints as endpapers & one colour plate - that colour plate has a tissur guard & on the tissue is printed whats depicted in the print -(never seen that use before), the print bte is what's used on the cover of the USA Lippincott editions. Cover board is "sad" & the spine quite darkened, the sewn-in binding is good though the front board shows the webbing, I guess it reflects the book was well read many times & so a low price. The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle was the second of Hugh Lofting's Doctor Dolittle books to be published, coming out in 1922. It is nearly four times longer than its predecessor and the writing style is pitched at a more mature audience. Doctor Dolittle, the veterinarian who can actually talk to animals, sets sail on the high seas for new adventures with Polynesia the parrot, Jip the dog, Chee-Chee the monkey, and young Tommy Stubbins. Together they travel to Spidermonkey Island, brave a shipwreck, and meet the incredible Great Glass Sea Snail. This novel won the Newbery Medal in 1922. [As an aside, if you have faith in the Newberry winners, please chase up a copy of 'Because of Winn Dixie', it has the most engaging of first paragraphs to lead you on.]
