[7], 8 -68, [5]pp. Decorated cloth boards with printed paper labels to upper board and to spine. Original slipcase with illustrations by Wilton Priestner. From the foreword:- 'The choice of illustrations reflects availability rather than preference as a rule. French editions are regrettably under-represented, but these were in practice the most difficult to borrow or to copy. Size is as near the original as possible'. The book is illustrated throughout and includes a number of tipped-in plates (all present). The checklist includes 106 illustrators, including Moreau-le-Jeune, Paul Klee, Alfred Kubin, Carl Sturtzkopf, Giuseppe Mazzoni, Norman Tealby, Robert Polack, Rockwell Kent, Brunelleschi, Sylvain Sauvage, Werner KlemkeWilhelm M. Busch and Angela Barrett etc. Book and slipcase in fine condition.
