GREENAWAY, Kate (illustrator). Under The Window. London: George Routledge & Sons. [1878].

Royal 8vo. Original dark green cloth-backed glazed pictorial boards, printed with a design in colours to both covers, yellow edges, dark green endpapers, glassine wrapper; pp. [vi], 7-64; every page decorated and illustrated in Victorian style with woodblock colour printing; a bright, fresh copy with only minor edge-rubbing and none of the usual scratching to boards, internally with only a little uniform toning and otherwise crisp with no inscription; the glassine appears original and shows a little creasing with short splits to spine.
First edition, later issue, (Schuster & Engen 201, 1b), with the figure of the boy in evidence on page 6 and printer's ornaments to either side of the printer's (Edmund Evans) name on the title-page, however retaining the images on pages 21, 35 and 63 which were deemed too frightening for children and which were dropped in later editions.
