The Wind in the Willows
Methuen, 1931 - 1st edition thus. Hardcover. Near fine green boards with gilt lettering and vignettes. Very clean pages and illustrated endpapers, and no foxing other than a few little spots to the edges of the last few leaves. The scarce dustjacket, priced at 7/6 on the spine, has benefited from some small repairs at the extremities; there are a few small marks; and the spine is slightly browned. Signed by the author - 'Yoursverytruly/Kenneth Grahame' - on a laid-in slip of paper. This was the issue in which Ernest Shepard's wonderful drawings first appeared, which made indelible impressions on all readers thereafter. Overall this is a very good copy of one of the great classics of English literature. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
