Description:
Constable, London., 1924. First edition. Folio. pp [vi], 183. 16 tipped-in colour plates by Charles Ricketts. One of 750 copies printed on hand-made paper. Designer binding by Gisele Aron executed by Zaehnsdorf probably in the 1950's: full cream and tan calf tooled in gilt and in blind, the title in red morocco inlaid on upper cover. Top edge gilt. Silk-covered endpapers, followed by another set of endpapers with a fleur-de-lys design.Most of the plates are creased at the bottom left corner, but only a couple of them significantly so. This seems to be a common problem with this book - we've never seen a copy where the plates haven't been affected in this way. Spine a little scuffed and tanned. Slight spotting to the prelims. Very good indeed in black buckram slipcase.
