How it works


Green linen boards with striking gilt image and lettering to the panel and gilt lettering to the spine. Despite some corner and spine bumping, the cover is crisp and attractive. The binding has loosened, however, with some cracking at the endpapers and between some sections, and there are some 15 square tape marks on the paste-downs. The book itself - frontispiece + 24 pp + reproductions of 74 oils, watercolours, etchings, woodcuts and drawings dating from 1915 to 1944 - is clean and in better than very good condition.

Valuable more for the content than the packaging.
