GRAHAME, Kenneth The Wind in the Willows

Methuen, 1931.

First edition with illustrations by E.H. Shepard. 8vo. Signed by both Grahame and Shepard to the title page. Original dark green cloth with gilt vignettes on upper cover and titles on the spine. Pictorial endpapers by Shepard. Illustrated throughout in line. A fine copy, small bump to head of the spine. A couple of very light spots to front endpapers and first blank, otherwise clean internally.

Uncommon signed by both author and illustrator.
Grahame's children's classic was originally published in 1908 with no illustrations in the text. Although the work was subsequently illustrated 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 have become inexorably linked to the book.
