Regretfully, due to Covid-19, we have decided to cancel our fairs up until the end of December.  However, at this stage, we cannot confirm if our London Christmas Fair will take place but we will keep you updated.
Book Description
The First UK printing of this illustrated edition published by The Golden Cockerel Press in 1927. Number 180 of only 500 copies printed (of which 250 were for the USA). The BOOK is in Very Good++ or better condition. Free from erasures and inscriptions. Light fading to the edges and the spine which has slightly encroached onto the cover edges. Top edge gilt. Gilt titling to the spine remains bright. Light offsetting to the end papers. All the original tissue guards are present (some are loose) and there is some light offsetting from these to the adjoining pages. Copies appear with and without the tissue guards and there appears to be no precedence regarding this. The WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good++ or better condition. Light edge-wear and dust soiling with a small amount of loss at the spine ends. A very sharp example of a scarce wrapper which looks very attractive in the removable Brodart archival cover. Twelve wonderful wood engravings by Eric Ravilious for each month of the year. Scarce.
