First Edition in recent goatskin binding. George C. Harrap, London 1932.
Beautifully illustrated throughout by Arthur Rackham with 12 full page coloured plates, all with captioned tissue guards. Numerous in text black and white line drawings.
The book is fine with very miniscule spotting to few pages (endpapers, half title) and some creasing to a couple of the tissue guards. The pictorial parts of the original binding of the front board were worked into the leather of the book cover as an inlay. The edges have been recut and the picturesque endpapers were copied to new ones. The rests of the original endpapers were bound in.
