First edition, trade issue of Beerbohm's caricatures of public figures ranging from Joseph Conrad to David Lloyd George, scarce in this condition. There was also a deluxe limited edition of 275 numbered copies signed by the author.
Quarto. Original red cloth, titles to spine and front board gilt, frame to front board in blind. With dust jacket.
Tipped-in frontispiece and 51 similar plates on fawn paper with printed tissue-guards.
Spine very gently rolled, light scattered spotting to the first few leaves, neat manuscript addenda to list of author's works. An excellent copy with unusually bright plates, the dust jacket marred only by a very short nick to head of rear panel.
