London: George Routledge and Sons, . First edition. Original beige pictorial cloth. Beveled edges. In the publisher's scarce, plain blue dust jacket. Dust jacket chipped, and split at folds. A bit of soiling to cloth, otherwise an internally clean (with no pencilings) copy. Twelve color plates, 370 small black and white interleaved text illustrations.
A beautiful gift book, feauting the work of one of the most recognizable and prolific illustrators of the Victorian period. (Item #3657)
