Description

pp. [viii],126; orginal end-papers, no date [1912]. This is the "New Edition", a reprint of the first edition, being the first to have this frontispiece and the seven full-page black and white illustrations. Fifty tipped-in colour plates with captioned tissue guards, distributed throughout the book (unlike the earlier editions where they were collected together at the back of the book); often considered to be the best edition. The book has been collated and is complete. Publisher's lime-green cloth binding with gilt lettering and decoration; good and strong with light rubbing to edges. Contents clean and tight, name and date 1921 to the top corner of the front free endpaper, light spotting/foxing to the title page, a few random spots to a few pages, generally very clean. A very good copy.
