Robinson, W. Heath
BILL THE MINDER
Constable, London, 1912. Deluxe signed limited edition, one of only 380 numbered copies signed by Robinson, a very fine copy. Because the book is printed entirely on handmade paper, the quality of the black and white illustrations in this limited edition is far superior to those in the trade edition, and the mounted color plates seem to be sharper and richer in color as well. The story features a boot cleaner named Bill who ends up baby sitting, or becoming the Minder, for a disagreeable group of children and they have marvelous adventures with Bill. Really an amazing copy of Robinson's best work, issued in a small limitation. 11.25'' x 9''. Original full gilt-stamped vellum with original silk ties. Top edge gilt, other edges uncut. Illustrated by Robinson with frontispiece and 15 other full-page color plates, plus many full-page and vignette black-and-white images throughout. xvi, 256 pages. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Type Punch Matrix [Silver Spring, MD, U.S.A.]
