Rare and First Edition illustrated by Rene Bull (1912). Published by Constable & Co., London. The hard coversrs are of maroon cloth, with gilt titles and colour illustration to front cover. There are twenty beautiful colour plates - illustrated by Bull - under captioned tissue guards, as well as accompanying black and white drawings. This is a very good copy, the spine has some slight fading, but is to be expected with a book of this age.
