From the library of the scholar and auctioneer Anthony Hobson, with his bookplate to the front pastedown.
Small quarto. Original dark blue velvet boards, all edges gilt. With illustrations by Osbert Lancaster, de Cronin Hastings, Gabriel Pippet and others. Boards a little bowed; an exceptional copy.
