About This Item

George Robertson & Co., nd (1907) 1907. 1st Edition. Softcover. VG-. RENTOUL, Ida S (Outhwaite). 1st printing. Landscape Folio, 30.3. x 25cm, pictorial card wraps, with original gold cord binding. 32pp of words and music for nine songs including a dedication page 'To Her Excellency The Lady Northcote' and nine full page black and white illustrations by Ida Rentoul (Outhwaite). The covers have been professionally repaired to stabilise and protect losses to the fore edge corners and spine, particularly at the head and foot (see images). There is an ownership name in ink in the top right-hand corner of the front cover just above the G and S of SONGS. The original gold cord tie is beginning to untwist at the ends. Internally the book is very good with two small repaired closed tears of 1cm to the top and bottom edge of p29 and very slight toning to the page edges. All in all, a nice first edition copy of this early example of Ida Rentoul's illustrations. (Muir 6336). Rainford & Parris Books welcomes enquiries, so please do not hesitate to ask if you require further images or have any questions. All books are packaged with great care.
