Notes

First revised edition, first impression, attractively bound and featuring Pogány's illustrations beautifully reproduced by the Edinburgh lithographic printers McLagan and Cumming. With a reputation as the finest lithographic printers in Scotland, the "lithographers concerned were truly artists, and not only in their treatment of subjects, but in conception of colour values", the final works showing "direct litho at its finest and best" (The British Printer). A highly attractive book from Pogány's "golden age" (Menges).
