An Angler's Anthology. Collected by A.B.Austin and with drypoint illustrations by Norman Wilkinson. (SIGNED LIMITED EDITION)
Country Life Ltd., London, 1930. The deluxe issue of the first edition, limited to 100 numbered copies signed by both the editor and illustrator [this being #24]. 4to. xix, 168pp. White buckram lettered in gold at the spine and upper board with an ornate gilt-stamped border. Top edge gilt, others untrimmed. With a tissue-protected frontispiece and twenty-three delightful plates, each with tissue guards present [this deluxe issue included an additional signed etching, but alas that is not present here]. A penny-sized area of light staining to the backstrip and just a touch or marking to the cloth at the rear board. A virtually fine copy. No dust wrapper called for but lacking the original solander box and of course the additional etching.
