LIMITED EDITION HANDSOMELY BOUND

Deluxe limited edition, number 263 of 1,130 numbered copies, of which 1,100 were for sale, with the last 30 reserved for presentation. Published when the book came out of copyright in 1907, this deluxe edition was issued unsigned, as Rackham was out of the country at the time. For the first time, Rackham's plates were distributed at the appropriate places throughout the text, rather than gathered together at the end as they had been in Rip Van Winkle (1905) and Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens (1906).
