Full Description

8vo. 128pp, including colour litho frontispiece and 7 colour litho ills by Edward Bawden. Publisher’s cloth, worn on spine and outer corners.

The text is reproduced unchanged from the Bodley Head edition of 1953, but the impressive feature of the present edition is the series of colour illustrations by Edward Bawden (1903-1989), who also designed the volume’s endpapers.
