By Graily Hewitt

With Four Hundred and Three Illustrations


Publisher: Seeley, Service & Co. Ltd., 1930, first edition.  This is the limited edition, number 147 of 370 numbered copies, signed by the author.  The book is a quarto, bound in cream buckram with gilt titles on the spine.  Top edges gilt, other edges uncut, silk bookmark ribbon.

This volume is from the estate of Lord Wardington, who was a book and map collector, and his bookplate is on the back endpaper.  On the front endpaper is the bookplate of S.R. Wycherley (Sydney Renoden Wycherley), who was an inventor.

The book is in very good condition, with the buckram a little marked. (There was a fire at the home of Lord Wardington, and his whole library had to be rescued.)  There is some light foxing to the endpapers, and a couple of light spots on the title page, but the book is otherwise clean and bright, and the binding tight and firm.  It is fully illustrated, both in full-page plates and within the text.  A most beautiful volume.

Quarto, 26.5 cm tall, 336 pages.
