THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS
London: Methuen & Co. Ltd. 1908. First edition, first printing. First edition, first printing. Original blue-green cloth with gilt illustration and title to the front and spine, in the first state dustwrapper. Black and white frontispiece by Graham Robertson. Housed in a green quarter morocco solander box (by the Chelsea Bindery). A very good copy, the binding extremities lightly rubbed and very minor wear to spine-tips. The contents with faint foxing to the prelims, marginal repairs to a few leaves from irregularly cut edges, not affecting the text. Complete with the rare first state dustwrapper which appears in near fine condition having undergone light highly skilled professional restoration to the folds and panel extremities. An attractive example of this classic of childrens literature. Rare in the original first state dustwrapper, correctly priced 6/- to the upper panel (in later editions / issues the price was raised to 7/6). Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request. Lucius Books welcomes direct contact with our customers.
