Treasure Island.London, Ernest Benn Limited, 1927 Stock Code: 131651
NotesFirst Dulac edition, signed limited issue, number 49 of 50 copies signed by the illustrator, bound in vellum and printed on handmade paper, and notably rare due to the unusually small limitation. Hughey describes Dulac's watercolour illustration for Treasure Island as his "most careful and superb painting", and Dulac himself considered them his best work.
Quarto. Original vellum, black morocco label, top edge gilt. Housed in a red flat-back cloth box by the Chelsea Bindery.
Frontispiece and 11 colour plates, black and white illustrations in the text by Edmund Dulac.
Trivial marks to covers, sporadic very light foxing, very minor stain at foot of final two leaves. A near-fine copy.
