COUNTRY SKETCHES FOR CITY DWELLERS.

Edition: First Edition

London: Adam and Charles Black, 1908. Green decorated cloth stamped in black & gilt, top edge gilt. (2), (x), 166, (2, ads) pp. 16 colour plates with captioned tissue guards inserted. Book just a mite leaned; spine very slightly age-darkened; usual light endpaper tanning from binding; tiny chip and abrasion to upper outer corner of front free endpaper; light yellowing to page edges; else a fine copy. Text and watercolours by Rawnsley. One of the scarcest volumes in Black's 7s6d series, it was published at the author's expense (very unusually for A.& C. Black) in an edition of 2000 copies, 1800 of which remained unsold when the book was remaindered in 1910. "This is almost certainly a record low figure for the publisher's sales of any of these books." - Inman p. 68. See Inman 140 for the main entry.; Octavo
