GRIBBLE, Francis (author). J. and May HARDWICKE LEWIS (illustrators). The Lake of Geneva. London; Adam and Charles Black, 1909.

Large 8vo.; publisher's mid-blue cloth with Art Nouveau design in celadon green, lettered in gilt, top edges gilt; pp. x, [2] + 360; with 60 coloured plates protected by captioned tissue-guards and a folding map in sepia tipped in to the rear; an uncommonly good copy of a very scarce book with some mild blistering to cloth at joints and fore-edge of lower wrapper and speckling to fore-edge of book block, internally fine and clean, without inscription.
First, and sole, edition with only 1000 copies printed. This is the scarcest title in A. & C. Black's Twenty Shilling Series, with the usual print-run for the series numbering 3,000. Three sections of the book were published as separate volumes in the 7s. 6d. series. Inman 30.
