CHANNEL ISLANDS - CAREY, Edith F. (author) and Henry B. WIMBUSH (illustrator). The Channel Islands. London, Adam & Charles Black, 1904.

Royal 8vo.; publisher's dark blue decorative boards strikingly blocked in emerald green, orange and gilt to spine and upper cover, top edges gilt, others untrimmed; pp. [xiii], [1]-294; with a total of 76 coloured plates protected by captioned tissue-guards and a tipped-in folding map of the region to the rear; an uncommonly bright, fresh copy with minor rubbing to spine tail and forecorner tips, internally clean, without inscription, and with neat repair to inner upper hinge; an elusive title.
First edition, one of 3000 copies. Inman 13. A fulsome sketch, in prose and image, of the islands of Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney and Sark, including details of their particular histories and pointing to many of their legends and traditions.
