English writer, Flora Annie Steel. The edition is in excellent condition for
its age and would add value to a collection of Arthur Rackham’s works. Original red cloth boards with gilt elf illustrations.

F.A. Steel. 341 printed pages plus two pages of advertisements. The boards and binding are solid and tight with some slight fading to the spine and light overall shelf-wear. The pages are crisp and clean save for a very light stain in the top corner of text pages 1-15 and an occasional spot or two of light foxing on a few of the text pages.
