John Lane. London. 1904. FIRST U. K EDITION. Large 8vo. (9.4 x 7.2 inches). Colour illustrated title page and 8 full page colour plates. The colour illustrated front panel from the American edition dustwrapper is tipped in at the end of the book. A fine and bright copy in the publishers first issue binding of bright red cloth with gilt stamped rules, lettering and illustrations to front board and spine. Top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Decorative colour printed endpapers by Parrish. Obviously not a fast selling title as this first edition copy from 1904 comes in the publishers remainder issue dustwrapper (circa 1920 but still priced at £1-1-0 net) which has black lettering and ruled lines to both panels and both inner flaps. Spine lettered in black. Two small chips to the top of the spine, which is also a little faded but overall this is a stunning fine and gleaming bright copy of the book in a near fine remainder dustwrapper. Rare in such nice condition.
