Notes

Signed limited edition, number 160 of 250 copies signed by the artist. "Publication was delayed by the war - Ransome complained on 15 February 1915 that Mackenzie has 'suddenly gone off to Serbia' - and by Ransome's own absence from England" (Hammond). This is one of the finest work of the illustrator Thomas Mackenzie (1887-1944).
