First edition, first issue, with 'The long day lengthens' in the dedicatory poem and with Beau appearing to be overweight in the illustration facing page 18. Extremely rare in the original dust-jacket, and especially in such good condition; the jacket has also preserved wonderfully the brightness of the original cloth and decorative gilt underneath.

First edition, 8vo., [xvi], 89, [3] pp., with frontispiece and 25 plates, with headpieces and other illustrations by Thomson in text, partially unopened; publisher's maroon cloth gilt, bevelled edges, top edge gilt, printed dust-wrapper; slight rubbing at extremities, wrapper somewhat chipped, otherwise a very good copy.
