Full Description

8vo. 128pp, including colour litho frontispiece and 7 colour litho ills by Edward Bawden. Publisher’s cloth, in publisher’s card slipcase. A good copy.

The text is reproduced unchanged from that of 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. Millington p. 263.
