"Visiting The Foxes" By Nicolas Bebbington, Illustrated By R.M. Turvey (published by Blandford Press Ltd, London - mid 1940's) - Part 2



Couldn't find any information on R.M. Turvey who created these beautiful pictures for thi and a number of other Nicolas Bebbington books. This is a first edition book and the printing quality is superb but, annoyingly, the  publication date is nowhere to be found! - perhaps there is a page missing. I am guessing from a quick search on the internet that it was published in the mid to late 1940's.
