The Water Babies

GOBLE, Warwick / Charles / KINGSLEY

GOBLE, Warwick The Water Babies

Macmillan, 1909.

First edition illustrated by Warwick Goble. 4to. Green cloth with lettering in gilt and vignette on upper cover. All edges gilt. Thirty two magnificent mounted colour plates all under captioned tissue guards, one with small corner crease. A very good copy, some fading to the cloth, though less than usual, and a small mark to rear cover.

First gift book and one of his most sought after works and an extremely difficult book to find in lovely condition. A contemporary review said of the book, "Goble in his thirty-two beautiful colour plates... delights us. He has given us sand and sea, fish and fairies which captivate us at once; for delicacy of colouring and grace of line he has bettered his best, and the volume is a continuous pleasure."
