Notes

Signed limited edition, 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.
