Oblong, 9.5 by 14.5 cm. Unpaginated, 16 leaves (printing only on rectos), plus wraps. 14 color plates, including front cover. The illustrations are in a style reminiscent of Florence Upton, illustrator of the Golliwog series of books, with exuberant stick figures. The effect here is one of primitivist panache, and the splashy color captures somehow the sundrenched Azores with its Latin flavor spot-on. Only the cover illustration of a more formal, heraldic-like drawing of a caravel and mermaids does not quite fit this mold. Scarce, with no copies located on OCLC First Search or elsewhere! Light soiling to cover. Otherwise, clean, fresh, delightful. Bookseller Inventory #
