GRAHAME, Kenneth The Wind in the Willows

Methuen, 1931.

First edition illustrated by E.H. Shepard. 8vo. Original dark green cloth with gilt vignettes on upper cover and titles on the spine. Pictorial dustwrapper with Shepard's line drawings in navy blue. Pictorial endpapers by Shepard. Illustrated with Shepard's distinctive line drawings throughout . A near fine copy in a very good dustwrapper indeed, which is crisp and complete, but with slight toning and a bit of discolouration to the spine.

Grahame's children's classic was originally published in 1908 with no illustrations in the text. Although the work was subsequently published with illustrations by several artists, none matched the success of the text until, E.H.Shepard, fresh from his successful collaboration on A.A.Milne's Winnie the Pooh books, brought the narrative to life with his evocative line drawings in 1931. His illustrations have been barely out of print since and the fame of Grahame's characters owes much to Shepard's popular illustrations.
