First edition with illustrations by Harry Rowntree and René Bull. Thin large quarto (12 1/8 x 9 5/8 inches; 308 x 243 mm.). 110, [1], [1 blank] pp. Twelve magnificent full color plates by Harry Rowntree and eighty-four delightful pen-and-ink drawings in the text by René Bull.Original gray linen over boards, front cover lettered in orange and brown.

Jacket price-clipped, otherwise near fine.Harry Rountree (1878-1950) was a prolific illustrator working in England around the turn of the twentieth century. He came to London in 1901 from New Zealand, when he was 23 years old. Determined to make his mark on the then-flourishing magazine and book market, he struggled, studied and sold the occasional drawing. However, when the editor of Little Folks magazine gave him a commission to illustrate a story with an animal, he found his feet and suddenly he became quite successful. By 1903 he was illustrating books for the editor of Little Folks, writing and illustrating his own books, and in demand by nearly every publisher in London. He was one of the subjects in Percy V. Bradshaws' The Art of the Illustrator, 20 part series, published in 1918, where six stages of the creation of an illustration were published along with notes and biography. He is also noted for his illustrations of British Golf Courses & golfing caricatures.René Bull (1872-1942) was born in Dublin to a French mother and an English father. He went to Paris to study engineering but veered into an artistic career after meeting and taking drawing lessons from the French satirist and political cartoonist Caran d'Ache (Emmanuel Poiré). Bull returned to Ireland to contribute sketches and political cartoons to various publications. Moving to London in 1892, Bull drew for "Illustrated Brits" and created cartoons 'Pick-Me-Up' from 1893. In 1896 Bull joined Black and White illustrated newspaper as a special artist and photographer. In 1898 he covered the Tirah Campaign in India and went on to Sudan for the campaign culminating in the Battle of Omdurman. He settled in England and drew cartoons for such magazines as 'Bystander', 'Chums', 'London Opinion' 'Lika Joko'. In 'The Sketch" Bull created cartoons of humorous inventions, predating those of Heath Robinson. From 1905 he illustrated books, starting with an edition of Fontaine's 'Fables'. Other major titles he illustrated included The Arabian Nights (1912), Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám (1913), The Russian Ballet (1913), Carmen (1915), Andersen's Fairy Tales. The story of Uncle Remus and Brer Rabbit was first published in New York in 1907 by Frederick A. Stokes, and was illustrated by J.M. Conde. Bookseller Inventory # 03132
