An excellent copy of a scarce First Limited Signed Edition. Vellum with only very slight signs of shelfwear to corners and edges. Tight and square binding. Occasional slight pale spotting to pages and tissues due to proximity of the dark olive mounts, slight transferring of the olive mounts to adjacent pages, as is typical, all other text pages unusually bright. There are no bookplates or inscriptions or any notable marks. All of the 40 full color lithograph illustrations are in flawless condition, all tissues perfect without tears or creases.
