The Square Book Of Animals (Deluxe ‘Library Edition’ Printed On Japanese Vellum)
Heinemann 1900 - The First UK Printing published by Heinemann in 1900. This is the scarce 'Limited Library' Deluxe edition with full pictorial cloth boards slightly larger in format than the more commonly found standard 'Popular' trade edition. This Deluxe edition is printed on sumptuous Japanese Vellum paper. The BOOK is in near Fine condition and is firmly and squarely bound. The boards are generally clean with slight bumping to the spine ends and corners. A few minor nicks to the cloth. The text block is a little toned with only minor spotting and slight marking to some of the pages. Free from inscriptions and erasures. The 12 plates and text are crisp and fresh. Each image is accompanied by a verse composed by Arthur Waugh. Light offsetting from the plates to the opposing pages. The 12 lithographs by William Nicholson are more vividly enhanced by being on the Japanese Vellum. One of the rarer of Nicholson's titles more-so in this deluxe format and with such attributes. More images available on request. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
