Dobson, Austin. THE STORY OF ROSINA. London: Kegan Paul Trench Trubner & Co, 1895. First edition, first printing in original publisher's red cloth, gilt. FINE copy in ORIGINAL DUSTJACKET which is in Very Good condition, a little browned and chipped at the extremities, fitfully foxed in just a few places, but it is a SCARCE opportunity to find ANY 19th century book in an original printed dustwrapper. Undervalued thus. Great black-and-white illustrations by Hugh Thomson, frontispiece still sports its original tissue guard. There doesn't seem much point to us in acquiring this stunningly designed and beautifully illustrated book without getting the best. Hugh Thomson of course was one of the great illustrators of his time. Austin Dobson, who almost single-handed revived the tradition of 18th century ballads, created a minor masterpiece in ROSINA. Here the dustwrapper has protected the book and the result is that you can own a copy which is dazzling. Bookseller Inventory # 001690
