London, Glasgow, Bombay: Blackie and Son Ltd., .
First edition. Special Edition. Signed by Charles Robinson. Quarto. xxi, (iii), 294p. Illustrated by Charles Robinson on nearly every page with vignettes, 100 black and white plates, and 28 tipped-in color plates on green stiff paper. Title page printed in red and black. Bound in the original cream cloth, t.e.g, the spine and upper cover densely decorated in gilt designs of animals and foliage. Not "as new", but near fine, the cloth just slightly darkened, the gilt on the fox of the upper cover light rubbed, the tissue guard to the frontispiece wrinkled from the binding process. Contents fresh. All-in-all still a lovely copy. Item #22579
Flyleaf signed by Charles Robinson with a drawing of the head of a young child.
This edition, a bit larger than the trade edition in red cloth, is scarce. This copy unique with Robinson's signature and drawing.
