Howden (E. Yorks): Mr. Pye Books, 1999. Small slim 4to, (48)pp., all illustrated in b/w with line drawings by Peake. Original quarter green cloth, decorated paper boards, black box stamped in gilt. As new. Limited to 26 lettered copies, signed by Sebastian, Fabian, and Clare Peake. There was also an edition of 100 copies unsigned. First published in 1939, the original edition is rare and very expensive as it was destroyed by enemy action during the war; after the war Peake colored the plates for the 1945 edition. This is a pleasant reissue of the uncolored 1939 version. (Item Id: 105645)
