Tales of Daring and Danger

I found this dusty old book in our bookcase, it was just to fantastic to be hidden behind all the paperbacks that I had to bring it to the front.
I love the colour of the cover, the pattern of the green leaves and yellow dots!
On the inside of the cover, it stated that the book was awarded to a lad called Joseph in 1925 from his school for the highest number of marks!  I can picture him sitting in front of the open fireplace absorbed in book of such adventure! 
The first chapter entitled Bears and Dacoits, A Tale of the Ghauts surely would have enthralled Joseph. And me?  Well, I'll admit that I haven't read it yet, but I just love the texture, the colours, the smell and I just love the fancy font they used too!
