DE LA MARE, Walter, & Harold Jones.
This Year: Next Year.
First edition, first impression, of this delightful book, scarce in the dust jacket. “[Harold Jones’s] lithographs for de la Mare’s This Year: Next Year (1937) marked the emergence of a fresh talent in book illustration; and the flat colours strike the eye as something quite new” (Horne, The Dictionary of 20th Century British Book Illustrators, p. 265).
