Early printing (originally published in 1911), 8vo, blue cloth, gilt titles, pictorial paste-on, 463 pages, 10 color plates, illustrated endpapers. VERY GOOD- / no jacket: light rubbing to spine extremities and corners, gilt lettering on spine slightly dulled, pictorial paste-on has a few scratches at the edges, first signature is slightly loose with half-title detaching, owner inscribed on first blank page otherwise book is clean throughout, all the lovely and bright Smith plates are present with tissue guards. A nice copy despite these few flaws.
