The Snow Goose

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

The Snow Goose-the legend of Dunkirk-was first published during the grim days of 1941. For this special edition, Lieutenant Commander Peter Scott, M.B.E., D.S.C., whose magnificent paintings of sea birds and waterscape are outstanding examples of contemporary art, has contributed four plates in full colour in addition to a number of black and white illustrations. All the skill and craftmanship of block-makers and printers and binders combine to make this edition of The Snow Goose a possession to treasure not only for its loveliness, but as a reminder of those proud days of 1940 when this country stood alone defying the powerful enemies of civilisation.

This hardback illustrated edition was first published in 1946. The book is in blue cloth with white printed titles to the spine, snow goose printed vignette in white and black to the front cover. The pictorial dust jacket by Peter Scott continues the blue and white theme. With 4 full page colour plate reproductions of Peter Scott's paintings, as well as line drawings by him in text, and pictorial endpapers. This was the first time Gallico's book, which originally appeared in 1941, had been illustrated. It shows Scott's passion for geese and wild landscapes. The book is in good condition in a clear sleeve and the pages shows slight foxing. The dust jacket has been clipped and is torn on the top and bottom of the spine and frayed a little along it. The blue cloth spine is slightly discoloured at the top and bottom. The book is well bound and in good condition.
