The Vicar of Wakefield.Philadelphia: David McKay Company, [1930?] Stock Code: 113258

Colour frontispiece and 11 colour plates, black and white illustrations in the text, by Rackham.
An exemplary copy, just the slightest touch of foxing to the jacket and title page, and light signs of handling to the box.
