SOLD

Published by Hodder and Stoughton Limited, London. Undated but c. 1912.

A handsome copy of this much admired book. This was the first edition to feature 50 colour illustrations by Arthur Rackham as well as a number of black and white plates, which were positioned throughout the book.

The book is near fine overall, and the original publisher's green cloth remains bright and clean with its attractive blind embossed gilt motifs to front cover and spine. Rear cover has 2 small discoloured spots and one 4mm nick to the cloth on the top edge of the rear cover.

The text and colour plates are in beautiful condition throughout. The colour plates have printed tissue guards. Text and plates are in immaculate condition and are all present as called for. Just some mild foxing to the free endpaper at each end of the book. A really lovely copy of this classic.

Text in English.

Frontispiece + vi + 126pp + Black and White & Colour Plates with printed frontispieces.
