Lovely illustrations and decorations by Rhead, as well as photographs illustrate this beautifully written and decorated book. Please note that there are a few marginal notations in pencil by a previous owner which I have not erased, because they are interesting and well placed. They would be easily erasable if you wish, but I felt they were intrinsic to the book at this point, place there by someone else who loved it. 026096
