Very scarce – no copies in holding libraries, only one other on the net @ £900+. It is possible this was not published at all due to the outbreak of the war and the printing mistake? Illustrations signed B.E.F. Spine faded affecting edges of colours. Plates intact. Drawings hand coloured a little sketchily with some offsetting to adjacent pages and plates. Printing error has pp 31- 46 flipped vertically (collated upside down. Some foxing throughout – a fair/ good copy
