Professor Branestawm's Treasure Hunt

Norman Hunter


An older version of the classic Norman Hunter novel, Professor Branestawm's Treasure Hunt, with plenty of in-book illustrations and barely-broken-in pages. A great addition to any collector's (or collector's childrens') bookshelf!

The book has been previously owned, but on the whole, is in great shape (especially for a book published in the 60s). Except for the small flaws below, the book still has a sturdy feeling when picked up. 

Printing/binding: Paperback
Illustrations: George Adamson
Publisher: Puffin Books
Published in: 1966
Pages: 195

About this book-- from the inside flyleaf:

"When it was a case of inventing an unspillable teacup, or a collapsible-cum-expandable house, or a liquid carpet to be applied with a brush, or a machine for peeling and pipping grapes, a bomb or a fire alarm, Professor Branestawm was the man for the job. His interests were wide, and his intentions excellent, but it simply isn't any joke to be an inventor, or to be anywhere near one, as the Professor's military friend Colonel Dedshott and his long-suffering housekeeper Mrs. Flittersnoop well knew."
