About This Item

Stevenson, Robert Louis. Ten Fables with Twenty One Illustrations by Rachel Russell. London: The Swan Press, Chelsea : MCMXXVIII [1928]. With a memorial bookplate, "In Memory of Michael Hariot Huth Walters for his Friend" with the name Betty Menzies written in ink. Elizabeth G.C. Menzies was the rare woman staff photographer at Princeton University, whose images decorated the front cover of the Princeton Alumni Weekly for many years and a friend of Michael Heriot Huth Walters. Walters died suddenly. His friends at Princeton and his family, owners of the Swan Press, compiled a memorial volume of tributes from his classmates. This volume of Stevenson was given in appreciation to each of those contributors. The woodcut frontispiece is "'Drink' Sang the Daughter of Miru." Unpaginated, In-8. [iv; 36 pages; iv] 26 cm. Copy 65 of 250, printed in Baskerville type on hand-made paper. Copy 65 is one of the numbered uncolored copies numbered from 11 to 240. Blue swan decorated paper boards with a white linen backstrip. Two corners slightly bumped, otherwise very good to fine condition, with a bittersweet association.
