Kenneth Grahame - The Wind in the Willows - 1908 UK 1st edition
Kenneth Grahame - The Wind in the Willows - 1908 U.K. first edition published by Methuen and Co The book is firmly bound in the publisher's gilt decorated blue cloth, it has been re-backed with majority of the original spine overlaid onto similarly toned material, the rear board shows signs of rubbing and water damage, the corners are bumped and rubbed and there are further minor marks. The text block retains the original endpapers and pastedowns, though with repairs to the gutters and an additional front endpaper of similarly aged paper, it is toned, stained and foxed with several names written neatly to the original front endpaper and a bookseller's label to the rear pastedown. Nice copies are hard to find due to having been read numerous times, this one looks as though it could have been in Toad's pocket when he drove the hi-jacked motor car into the pond, and as such is an awful but not entirely charmless first edition of a perennial favourite.
