Macmillan and Co. London. 1897.
FIRST HUGH THOMSON EDITION. 8vo. (7.8 x 5.4 inches). Illustrated with 40 full page line drawings. Publishers original burgundy cloth with decorative blind stamped floral design to both boards, the front board lettered and ruled in gilt. Spine ruled and lettered in gilt. Fore and lower page edges untrimmed. Publishers presentation copy with blind circular presentation stamp to the title page. Aside from some browning to the tissue guard opposite the frontis that has affected the title page very mildly, and a neat previous owners name on the blank free endpaper this is a very good, bright copy internally with the cloth spine a bit faded and rubbed to the edges but overall about very good.
