Large quarto. Original light brown cloth box with pictorial label to front cover, dark green art paper portfolio containing title page, 24 colour plates and the parchment endpapers from the book issue, each mounted on dark green art paper.
Illustrations by Edmund Dulac.
Box with neat repair to one corner, extremities lightly rubbed, a few small bumps to fore edge of front cover, the occasional light crease to corners of mount paper. An excellent copy with crisp plates.
