A bright near fine copy. Light rubs to the spine ends and joints, and a small mark to upper cover, though generally a very bright copy. Browning to free endpapers, the contents otherwise clean and fresh.

Loosely inserted is a Hodder and Stoughton leaflet advertising their other "Magnificent Colour Books" and denoting that copies of this edition de luxe are now "all sold".
All 1000 copies of this book sold out as soon as they went on sale at the price of two guineas. The publishers advertised the book as "the most beautiful book ever published at a popular price". The illustrations are beautiful with rich colours and Dulac's wonderful dark blue skies and twinkling stars.
