The Adventures of Rupert the Little Lost Bear original binding is cream in colour and the front board of the book is profusely illustrated with the early illustration of Rupert Bear holding a hoop in his left paw and a stick in his right walking in the snow in his trademark checked trousers, and with other smaller illustrations including Rupert rubbing his eyes.


The Adventures of Rupert the Little Lost Bear binding is in Very Good condition with the colours being bright and vivid but with slight dust staining to the boards, edge wear, knocks to the corners and to the top and bottom of the spine of the book, and an almost invisible neat repair to the paper spine at the top.


The Adventures of Rupert the Little Lost Bear book has 87 numbered pages but there are 88 in total, each of the text pages from the Rupert stories has a colour illustration underneath.  The pages are in overall Very Good condition with medium browning to the endpapers, an inscription in pencil to the front free endpaper, and very slight and occasional marks to the pages which are tightly bound-in and still have a relatively fresh feel for a book of this age.
