New York: Press of the Woolly Whale, 1930. W.A. Dwiggins. Full leather. A very interesting copy of the 1930 re-issue by the Press of the Wooly Whale of New York. Re-bound in a full chocolate-brown leather, with bright git-titling along the spine and the W.A. Dwiggins-designed door-knocker from the title page gilded ono the front panel. Unsigned but possibly a one-of-a-kind or a Presentation binding by Melbert B. Cary, Jr. of the Press of the Woolly Whale. The book is well-preserved and VG+, with crisp, bright-white pages. Other than a small inscription on the front free endpaper, the book is clean as could be, with no writing or markings to speak of. The 5 initial chapter letters and the title page door-knocker are all designed in a rich red by the great W.A. Dwiggins. The leather binding is clean and VG+ to Near Fine, with just a touch of wear along its flap-folds. Folio, gilt top-edge, deckled fore and bottom edges. #207 of only 250 copies issued. This title represents "the first folio and first prose volume from the Press of the Woolly Whale" Very Good +. Item #15107
