Nicely attractive little book complete with original presentation box and gift card.

Hardback – leather/faux-leather binding with nice decoration to spine and front board, page block with top edge gilt. 95pp including b/w illustrations and four colour plates. 5 x 3.5 inches approx. (128mm x 89mm).

Box rubbed and worn but overall very sound, remains of a label to one end. Front and rear boards a touch ‘bowed’, pressure dent to rear; ownership and gift inscription in ink to endpapers; foxing and dustiness to preliminaries and last few pages but generally clean throughout; pages a touch ‘kinked’ to upper corner.

Nonetheless, a nicely preserved copy in collectable condition – lovely indeed.

[SOLD]
