TAKE ONE TOAD is a large format book of 'ancient remedies'. It is notable for its full colour,double page, painted images. Searle is generally known for his masterful, monotone pen & ink drawings so it's always a delight to find colour illustrations by him. The book is embellished with 10 pages of colour illustrations & more than 20 in black & white.
This volume was first published in 1968.
