About this Item

A & C Black London 1928 1st Edition. 4to., 205mm x 270mm blue cloth backed decorative leaf patterned paper boards with black and white paste down image of two fairies (measuring 90 x 110 mm) together with titles to the front and gilt titles to the spine. 94pp +2pp publisher's ads, grey silhouette endpapers with 8 colour plates and 8 black and white plates together with a number of black and white images within the text. The cover is in clean and bright condition with sharp but ever so lightly rubbed corners and some very minor loss of paper along the bottom edge of the lower fore edge corners. The edges, which are usually fairly chipped in this volume, have virtually no wear. The cloth spine is only very lightly rubbed, has a small crease along the top and two small faint dark marks on the spine which are difficult to see unless you look very carefully. Internally the book is near fine. There are no names, inscriptions bookplates or other marks and the endpapers are very clean and bright, as are the pages and plates. There are one or two extremely light foxing spots only on the very edge of a couple of pages - this is as clean a copy of one of Outhwaite's works as we have seen. A beautiful work in lovely clean condition. Bookseller Inventory # 000100
