ATTWELL, Mabel Lucie
Hodder & Stoughton, 1921. First edition with illustrations by Mabel Lucie Attwell. 4to. Blue cloth with gilt titles on spine and upper cover. Both spine and upper cover have decorations in blue, green and gilt. Original pictorial dustwrapper. A very good copy indeed, in a good dustwrapper, which has a chip to the head of the spine and some dustiness, but has protected the book well. The twelve colour plates are mounted onto art paper with captions printed below, the image entitled "I daresay it will hurt a little" is made even more charming by being circular. In addition to the colour plates are numerous line drawings in the text. Slight edge crinkle to frontispiece. The first edition of this book is uncommon, it has been reprinted in various formats with Attwell's illustrations, but none are as delightful as the first edition of this wonderful gift book. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Jonkers Rare Books [Henley on Thames, OXON, United Kingdom]
