The original prospectus announced that the book would be bound in royal blue cloth, however this first issue was bound in a mustard yellow, and despite having some plates misbound, the end result is still compelling, not least due to its size. The book was subsequently reissued in blue cloth, with the plates correctly placed.

The book is accompanied by a cyanotype portrait of Conder in his studio.

First edition thus, first issue; small folio (260 x 160 mm); frontispiece and 5 wood-engraved plates printed in purple, [by Paul Naumann after] Charles Conder, some light spotting, ink name to front free endpaper; publisher's first issue yellow cloth blocked in purple, with Beardsley's Puck on Pegasus on lower cover, a little marked and bumped, uncut.
Provenance

Hubert G. Johnson (name in ink to front free endpaper).
