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).

Octavo. Original pictorial boards. With the dust jacket. Illustrated in colour throughout by Harold Jones. Scattered foxing to price-clipped jacket (more noticeable on back panel). An excellent copy.
