London, Nisbet & Co. [1919].


4to. Original olive green pictorial cloth stamped in brick red and violet, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, striking pictorial silhouette endpapers; pp. [126]; with 12 stunning coloured plates dramatically mounted on jet black card behind captioned tissue-guards; bold silhouette illustrations, borders, and decorations to every page, all in the Art Deco style; externally uncommonly fresh and clean with only minimal dusting; internally fine and crisp, with all plates and guards in pristine state.

First edition, first issue, with the top edge of the book block gilded. A fabulous book: possibly the finest illustrated edition of this classic and one of the most attractive illustrated gift books of the period.
