London: Hodder & Stoughton, [n.d., 1912]. One of 500 numbered copies, signed by the Publishers and Engravers/Printers, out of a total edition of 600 copies, this being number 330. Large quarto (21 3/16 x 19 5/8 inches; 539 x 500 mm.). [4] pp. Including engraved title-page and limitation statement. Twelve large proof size color plates mounted in mats with descriptive tissue guards. Original half vellum over light sage green cloth boards. Front cover lettered in gilt. New silk ties. All tissue guards present. Housed in the publisher's original printed box, missing one bottom panel flap and a few small chips to side flaps, some rubbing, especially to the top lid and a bit of old tape repair. Overall, a near fine copy. Of the 600 copies of this portfolio (which preceded the American portfolio by two years), one hundred were bound in full vellum and five hundred in half vellum. This portfolio and the American edition contain the largest Rackham plates ever printed. Greatly enlarged from their earlier appearance, these twelve plates are considered to be Rackhamís personal favorites from the fifty that appeared in his 1906 illustrated trade edition of Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens.
