The Wind in the Willows [1910, 5th edition]

£90.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

This immortal tale first appeared in 1908, and by 1910 had run into 5 editions. These were all unillustrated (the first editions with illustrations appeared in the early 1920s) apart from a frontispiece by the well-known artist Graham Robertson. The book has become perhaps the best-known and loved children's tale ever written, still enchanting children in the 21st century as it did early in the 20th.

Kenneth Grahame (1859–1932) was a Scottish writer best known for "The Wind in the Willows" (1908), one of the classics of children's literature. He also wrote "The Reluctant Dragon" (1898). Both books were later adapted for stage and film, of which A. A. Milne's "Toad of Toad Hall" was the first. The Disney films "The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad" and "The Reluctant Dragon" are other adaptations.

Our 5th edition book is in remarkably good condition for its age, its dark greenish cloth covers somewhat rubbed on edges & angles, and lightly scratched & stained; the only frank damage being a 6 cm split at the lower rear spine angle and some very slight damage to bumped corners. An impressed design of Pan on the river bank playing to Ratty and Mole, with title underneath, on the front cover may have originally been gilded, as the spine is quite densely decorated in faded gilt, with title etc, an illustration of Mr Toad, leafage and a flying insect all visible. Some shelf wear to top & tail of the spine. Page tops gilt (faded). Roughcut page edges. Inside, the sewn binding is firm with no loose pages; all pages are clean apart from one or two very occasional spots of foxing. Endpapers clean and undamaged. Frontispiece present and retains its tissue guard (rather browned). A nice copy of an early edition.
