The first edition of Hobbes'/Richards' last work, as she died unexpectedly that same year. This copy in the remarkably rare dust-jacket, repeating the design by Beardsley adapted from his poster for Fisher Unwin's Pseudonym and Autonym Libraries.

First edition; 8vo; title printed in red & black with publisher's device, 4pp. advertisements at rear, light toning to margins; publisher's white & blue buckram, design by Beardsley to the white section of the upper cover, top edge gilt, spine slightly toned and rolled, but overall a near fine example, in the original dust-jacket reiterating the Beardsley design, some restoration using tissue paper to spine ends and part of the upper cover, some other minor chips and tears, some toning and light dust-soiling.
