Admirably depicted by the "Goblin Master" in 12 colour plates plus b/w text illustrations. Brown cloth, gilt titles and vignette to front cover. Cream and brown pictorial endpapers. 255 pages.
Spine and corners bumped and rubbed. A few light marks to covers and a scratch mark/couple of small holes to centre of spine. Inscription in ink to front fly-leaf. Some light fingermarks to contents and a couple of grubby marks to textblock.
