This simply stunning book is in Fine condition. Tightly bound in original publisher’s green cloth backed boards, with cream paper label to spine with title printed in black. There is some mild sunning to the spine and label, but otherwise the boards are clean with the only other signs of wear being marginal bumping to the spine ends and board corners and the faintest hint of toning to the edges. Inside, this beautiful book with hand-made pages is in excellent condition. There is only the faintest hint of toning to the page edges, as with the boards, but apart from this the pages are clean and bright and free from any damage or blemishes. Signed and numbered by both author and illustrator, just one year before Grahame’s death, this is an incredibly rare book to become available, with it’s beautiful illustrations, by the same illustrator that depicted Winnie the Pooh so timelessly. In all this is a superb copy of this wonderful classic, and is absolutely an investment for any book collector, which is sure to only gain in value as time goes by. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any queries regarding this exceptional book.
