First Rackham edition, first impression. Presentation copy, inscribed by the illustrator on the half-title “R. F. Starkie from Arthur Rackham 9 Oct 05.” This is a family presentation: Rackham was married to Edyth Starkie, of an extended and notable Irish family.

Quarto. Original green cloth, titles and pictorial decoration to spine and front board gilt, publisher’s device to rear board in blind, dark green endpapers, all edges stained green. Bookplate of R. F. Starkie to front pastedown, some occasional light foxing, top corner bumped, small tear to headcap, a very good copy.
