Description

FIRST HARRISON EDITION, large 8vo, pp. xiv, [ii], 156, [2] + 24 tipped-in colour plates. 12 black and white full-page illustrations within the pagination, along with head- and tail-pieces. Original white cloth, spine and front board blocked in gilt, decorative endpapers, top edge gilt. Some spotting, one plate with corner slightly creased. Cloth just very slightly dusty, front hinge strained after flyleaf.

Notes

A nice copy - the white cloth is particularly prone to dustsoiling - of one of Harrison's sumptuously illustrated books, in her best pre-Raphaelite style.
