First edition of Beerbohm’s first book, preceding the UK edition by a matter of days, and in a considerably more attractive publisher’s binding. One of 1,000 copies printed, of which 401 were remaindered and eventually pulped.

Small octavo. Original brown cloth decorated in white and gilt after a design by Margaret Armstrong, top edge gilt. Housed in a custom red cloth slipcase and chemise. Neat contemporary ownership inscription to front free endpaper. Very light rubbing to corners and joints. An excellent copy.
