Illustrated throughout by E. H. Shepard.
Bookseller's ticket to rear free endpaper. Very light toning to endpapers and facing leaves, yet a remarkably nice copy, clean and bright internally and externally, binding square and tight; in the near-fine jacket, very lightly soiled, spine panel lightly sunned.
