Clean text; 271 pages, with six pages of publisher's adverts in the rear. Top-edge is gilt, others rough-cut. Distinguished by sixteen tipped-in colour watercolours by Henry W. Kerr. Mild rubbing and light bumping, with a slight lean; there is a tiny Dublin bookseller's label on the Rear Paste-down. Previous-owner signature (1912) on the FFEP. A solid and attractive book.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good (Plus)/No Jacket. Illus. by Henry W. Kerr. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. First Edition.
