Melbourne, E.W. Cole, [1910s].
Quarto,  pages with numerous illustrations (including 12 full-page colour illustrations) by Harry B. Neilson.
Quarter cloth and rainbow-decorated papered boards a little worn at the extremities; inner hinges split and tender; minor signs of handling; one leaf neatly detached but still present; a presentable copy.
Loosely inserted is a handwritten postcard-sized letter (27 March 1978) signed by Marcie Muir, the Australian children's book bibliographer. 'Thank you so much for letting me see & record details of your copy of "Cole's Jingle Jungle Book" - most interesting as I hadn't seen it anywhere before, nor did I have notes of it.... Obviously, there's no end to the books of various sorts old E.W.C. put his imprint on - one can only record them as they turn up & hope for the best.' Muir 1689 (this copy).
