Published: George G. Harrap & Co., London

Date: 1910

'This Edition is limited to 525 copies for sale in England and America, of which number this copy is 46, signed by Willy Pogany'. Large Format. Brown leather binding with gilt ruling, fine gilt design and lettering to upper board, gilt lettering to the spine, top edge gilt and original silk page marker - still attached but a little fragile. A fine example of Willy Pogany's work with stunning detailed illustrations being twenty tipped in plates, many bright and bold drawings to almost every page and decorative lettering, all framed by beautifully designed edges. Drying to the binding, as seems to be the case with all copies available online, scuffing to edges and tips of the spine, 2" split to top of the spine, but both boards firm with no movement, and scuffing to leather at rear board. Remarkably clean inside with only some age toning to endpapers as seen in photos, otherwise all pages clean, bright and crisp. A beautiful example. Unpaged.
