Treasure Island,

London, Ernest Benn, Ltd., 1927.
£5,800
A very rare deluxe Dulac edition, considerably at odds stylistically with the more well-known Edwardian and Inter-War deluxe editions produced by Hodder & Stoughton et al. Writing of this work in his bibliography of the artist, Ann Conolly Hughey states that the watercolours "...show a new Dulac style... The detailing and design of the pictures present some of Dulac's most careful and superb painting. He himself liked these illustrations best of all his work."
