8vo.; publisher's deep red cloth lettered gilt to spine and upper cover with a gilt-embossed vignette of the Bellman in gilt to upper board, top edges gilt, others uncut, in red cloth dustwrapper lettered in gilt at upper panel; pp. [xvi], 3-248; illustrated with 40 striking illustrations, printed in monochrome together with elaborate border designs to the text pages, printed in palest green, by Robert Murray Wright; a near fine copy in beautifully bright and crisp condition in a similarly fresh dustwrapper.
