Book Description

First edition. A professionally restored copy. Original pictorial paper-covered boards, new blue cloth spine with gilt title. Single pictorial end-paper front and rear to make a complete picture in orange. Pictorial title-page and 14 colour plates, plus black & white line drawings in the text. Frontispiece MISSING (apparently the publisher may have run out of this plate and issued some copies without it). Some light creasing including on one plate, evidence of a few old tape repairs. Nevertheless a clean and well restored book. Extremely scarce.
