Description:
Faber, London, 1959. Book. Near Fine. Hardcover. 1st Edition. First Edition (first printing). 4to. 135pp. Two-tone cloth lettered and ruled in gold at the spine. With a frontispiece and over 250 reproductions of Raverat's magnificent wood engravings, in the most part printed from the original blocks. With a list of titles and a bibliography. Endpapers lightly and partially browned. In virtually fine state, marred only by a handwritten slip pasted to the front endpaper noting, amongst other things, where and when a former owner purchased it. Housed in a very slightly dust marked example of the dust wrapper, non-price-clipped but with a single short closed tear and a hint of chafing to several extremities. A superb production..
