First edition with these illustrations. Original beige cloth with gilt titles and illustration to the front and spine. Profusely illustrated with 40 tipped in colour plates, each with captioned tissue guards, and many black and white illustrations throughout. A very good copy, the binding a little bumped and frayed at the spine and corners, with some darkening and marking to the cloth. The contents are entirely complete, with a previous owner's 1909 gift inscription to the title page, a bookseller's small label to the front pastedown, and some light foxing throughout, particularly to the tissue guards. All of the plates remain in fine condition.
