Book Condition: Near fine


Cream cloth stamped in gilt and brown. #464/1050. With eight full-page color illustrations by Alastair. The illustration opposite page 52 is signed in pencil, below the image. Title page printed in red and black, illustrations in red, sepia, and black. Condition: very good-near fine. A clean, tight copy that presents nearly fine. Covers: A small soil smudge about ½”x1” on both panels near center of spine; otherwise fine with no bumping or rubbing. Internally: near fine -- some light toning and spotting to front matter pages occasionally very faint foxing; this appears to be a defect in the paper, not external damage [see photos] -- not affecting any of the plates which were printed on different stock. We have handled several copies of this book and this is the nicest copy we have seen. The slipcase is in fair condition. Fully intact but partially split at spine, chipped at bottom spine, surface wear, rubbing to extremities; small inked marking below front label, small stain at right edge corresponds to the soiling on the covers and probably due to removing the book with unclean hand.
