London: William Heinemann, [1907]. London: William Heinemann,, [1907]. With a Proem by Austin Dobson. Quarto. Contemporary blue half crushed morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, top edge gilt. 13 colour plates. Spine faded to green, small flecked marks, a little light offsetting and a few spots to plates.

Published when the book came out of copyright in 1907, this deluxe edition was issued unsigned, as Rackham was out of the country at the time. For the first time, Rackham's plates were distributed at the appropriate places throughout the text, rather than gathered together at the end as they had been in Rip Van Winkle (1905) and Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens (1906).
