First Oxford UP edition, reprinted from Maugham's 1930 anthology. Cloth cover faded and rubbed, minor wear to corners, the binding solid, the interior unmarked, with just a few smudges; erasures on the half title page have left faint dents but no discoloration. Richard C. Jones's dazzling illustrations in bright pastels - turquoise, coral, orange, yellow, black and browns - are bold, reflecting Maugham's wry Siamese folk story skillfully; decorations range from double page to miniatures within the text. When the bird bathes, a tiny picture in the sentence shows the bird fluttering in a saucer; with two princesses, two little heads are drawn, 8 princesses, eight heads all in a row; a mention of rice fields has two pictures, one of a plant, the other showing 4 fish. A delightful all-ages book! 27 pages, 10" x 7.25". [A]. Bookseller Inventory #
