The Wind in the Willows
London: Methuen, 1908.. London:: Methuen,, 1908.. First edition.. Hardcover. Very Good. [vi], 302pp, plus the guarded frontispiece by Graham Robertson. Front free endpaper bears the original bookseller's blind stamp to the corner, a neat 1908 gift inscription, and a later ownership name, which has offset slightly to the pastedown. Contents very clean, with a faint crease to the upper corners, as if they had been slightly bent as a group. Minor foxing to the endpapers, and a one-inch stain to the title, which reduces rapidly over the next few pages. No internal splits or repairs. Top edge gilt, other edges uncut. Firm, in the original binding of blue cloth with the gilt image of Pan on the front and Toad in goggles on the spine. Japanese tissue repairs to the spine ends and the lower joint. Clean, with a thin faded ink mark to lower board, gilt fairly bright, with a faint mark to the centre of the Pan image. A very nice copy. One of greatest children's stories, as it first appeared.
