WHISTLER, Rex (illustrator). Laurence WHISTLER (author). Oho! London, John Lane The Bodley Head. 1946.
Slim 4to. Original pictorial boards, pictorial endpapers, preserved in pictorial dustwrapper; pp. ; illustrated with full-page reversible portraits printed in half-tones, by Rex Whistler together with verses by his brother Lawrence; a very fresh copy, both externally and internally, with a small scuff of paper from one edge (2 x 3mm) and bruising to spine ends; internally very clean throughout, protected by an attractive, unclipped dustwrapper (5s) with small chipping, and nicking, to spine ends and corners and a few other minor edge chips and tears.
First edition of the cleverest of the reversible books. Whistler's fifteen portraits can be viewed either way up and magically transform into quite different images.
