How it works


This is the correct true first edition - see images of the title page and its reverse side.

Original red cloth covered boards with bevelled edges, a pictorial onlay of Samuel Whiskers on the upper board, gilt titling on the spine, green and gilt titling on the upper board. Top edge gilt. Decorated end papers. 8 prelims, 70 pages, 18 full page colour plates including the frontispiece and black and white drawings.

Housed in a custom built slip case by master craftsman Peter Carstens covered with hand marbled paper and leather trim.

CONDITION DETAILS: This copy has several flaws. The top right hand side of the upper board has a stain probably caused by water and a little bled into the gutter of the first few pages. The binding has some wear. There is a pen name and address. The foxing/spotting on the text pages is scattered. Several images have been provided to show the book as it is. Flawed but complete.
