[1955 - 1957]. Two volumes, 16 fine colour plates by Charles Raymond, folio, pp 52; 47. [Part 1 is ex-library, with a stamp on the verso of the title page, and another on the front endpaper which also has some loss of the printed surface, there is some thumbing to the contents, the dustwrapper is a bit worn and marked, with signs of tape residue. Part 2 is much brighter, with a slightly worn dustwrapper which has a paper loss around the head of the spine. Both copies are un-numbered. [Four further parts were planned, but never produced. A work of great charm and discernment - Charles Raymond's plates are very distinctive and atmospheric.] Extra postage may be required.
