Small folio, pictorial title-page, ii, 105, 1 (list of Palmer’s etchings)pp. With 14 (of 15) plates and nine woodcuts printed from the original blocks. Original quarter roan and cloth boards lettered in gilt, rather worn. The frontispiece original etching is lacking.

§ First edition, a rare and important book here sadly lacking the original frontispiece etching “Christmas,” or “Folding the Last Sheep”. Valuable nonetheless for the original woodcuts, the illustrations, and the fine photographic portrait print of Palmer. Item #9995
