This example is in far from perfect condition, with loose pages, scuffing and foxing to various pages, damage to the front and back boards and some crayoning to the interior of the line drawings. There is a pencil inscription on the inside dated 1918 and this inscription has been copied again on a loose-leaf notelet placed inside the covers — obviously a very popular book! (Please see photographs!).
Nevertheless, a very rare and beautifully illustrated book, which offers the reader a nostalgic insight into an era long since vanished
The Frontispiece and a number of the plates would be most attractive framed.
