About this Item

Number 1258 of 1500 copies signed in the back by the illustrator. With illustrations by Malcolm Cameron. 8vo, original white calflskin, gilt-lettered and pictorially decorated in gilt with two penguins, over elegant silk covered boards in ice blue and white, housed in the original brown publisher's slipcase. XVI, 324 pp. A handsome copy with only slight mellowing to the spine. FIRST OF THE EDITION AND TRANSLATED FROM THE FRENCH BY A W EVANS AND WITH HAUNTING ILLUSTRATIONS BY MALCOLM CAMERON. "Penguin Island is a satire on society, drawn in the form of a fable, with a delightful minuteness of detail and with an abundant wit.It is a comic history of our civilization, from its beginnings to what Anatole France considered will be its frayed-out end. To make his history comic, the creatures of his stories are not human beings, but penguins." - editor. Bookseller Inventory # 26303
