More About this Item


Description:

[MACKENZIE, Thomas]. RANSOME, Arthur: Aladdin and his Wonderful Lamp. In Rhyme by Arthur Ransome. Illustrated by Mackenzie.

London, Nisbet, [1919]. Quarto (335 x 275 mm), unpaginated (but approximately 130 pages) with numerous illustrations and designs, plus 12 tipped-in colour plates with captioned tissue-guards, and pictorial endpapers. Later gilt-pictorial full black morocco with raised bands and gilt inner dentelles (stamped 'Bound by Zaehnsdorf for E. Joseph'); top edge gilt, others uncut; endpapers lightly marked; some of the more protruding uncut leading edges are a little dusty, with minor chips or tiny tears; trifling signs of handling; an excellent copy. The binding design appears to be identical to that on the original.

Notes:

The certificate of limitation on the verso of the title page calls for 250 numbered and signed copies; this copy is signed ('T. Mackenzie') but unnumbered. Loosely inserted is the publisher's original prospectus for the Edition De Luxe (small octavo, with the order form on the verso); it mentions that this edition is 'limited to 200 signed and numbered copies in the United Kingdom'. Not surprisingly, this is deemed to be the best illustrated work by Thomas Mackenzie (1887-1944).
