This is an auction for DOCTOR DOLITTLE'S POST OFFICE.

With Hugh Lofting's original illustrations.

From Wikipedia:

"Doctor Dolittle's Post Office is the third of Hugh Lofting's Doctor Dolittle books. Set on the West Coast of Africa, the book follows the episodic format of most other books in the series. In the beginning of the book, Doctor Dolittle helps to capture a slaver trader's ship, then organizes the postal service of a small African kingdom. In later chapters he discovers a hidden island populated by prehistoric creatures, meets the oldest living creature on Earth, gets thrown into an African jail, invents animal alphabets, defeats two armies, and each of the animals in the Dolittle family tells a personal story. The postal programme grows into a worldwide postal and publishing service for the benefit of animals everywhere. Like other Lofting books, the stories told are extremely charming. The level of good cheer in the stories is as high as any in the Dolittle canon. The king of the local kingdom likes to see himself on stamps, loves candy, and occasionally sells his people into slavery. The final segment of the story tells the story of the Doctor's journey to meet Mudface the Turtle, the oldest living creature on Earth, who relates the story of the Great Flood to the Doctor in the final chapters of the book..."
