About this Item

An early Grolier Club publication (i.e., number 4): Limited to 175 copies on Holland paper and two on vellum, with this copy on Holland. The illustrations are by George H. Boughton, Will H. Drake, and Howard Pyle; etchings by Henry C. Eno and F. Raubicheck . The text and illustrations were printed at the DeVinne Press, and => the edition contains previously unpublished authorial corrections. The title-page is in black and red, bearing the Grolier Club emblem in brown. Similarly, the initials and head- and tailpieces are printed in brown. Binding: 1920s-era half brown morocco with marbled paper sides and matching marbled endpapers; round spines, raised bands accented with gilt rules and gilt beading, and a gilt center device in each spine compartment. Top edges gilt, others uncut; binding unsigned, but elegantly accomplished. 8vo (23.5 cm; 9.125"). 2 vols. I: Frontis., [4 (of 6)] ff., 312 pp., 1 plate; lacks the two prelim. states of the frontis., the half-title, and the colophon leaves. II: [6], 275, [5] pp., [4] leaves of plates l lacks the two prelim. states of the frontis. Bound as above. Vol. I lacks half-title, colophon leaf, and the two states of the frontispieces before the lettering. Vol. II lacks the cancelled title-page, the two states of the frontispieces before the lettering, and the instructions to the binder. A lesson of a set, as the lacking elements that so affect the price of this handsome duo are so not-obviously "missing": One must *know* they're supposed to be there!. Bookseller Inventory # 35436
