More About this Item


Description:

ROBINSON, W. Heath: Bill the Minder. Written and illustrated by W. Heath Robinson.

London, Constable, 1912. Quarto (295 x 245 mm), xvi, 256 pages with over 110 wood-cut illustrations (many full-page) plus 16 tipped-in colour plates with captioned tissue-guards. Gilt-pictorial parchment with yellow ribbon ties attached to the leading edges of the boards; top edge gilt, others uncut; parchment a little rubbed at the extremities and lightly marked, with the rear cover a little scuffed and scored; short split (30 mm) deep in the outside front gutter (but very stable); flyleaves offset and foxed, with occasional light foxing elsewhere; uncut leading edges are a little dusty or tanned, with a few tiny tears or chips; a few mild signs of use and age; a very good copy, and rarely found in the original binding (because of the fundamental inadequacy of the material used for the job).

Notes:

Number 335 of 380 copies signed by W. Heath Robinson.
