The Water Babies. Charles Kingsley.

The Water Babies

London: Boots the Chemist (for Hodder and Stoughton), 1929. Decorative Cloth. Lovely 1929 illustrated edition, published by Boots the Chemist and lavishly illustrated by Jessie Willcox Smith. Solid and VG in its gilt-decorated bright green cloth, with light spotting to the endsheets and pastedowns (and a bit to the preliminaries), as well as a small, neat former owner inscription at the front pastedown. And in a bright, VG to VG+ dustjacket, with very light chipping at the tips and the spine ends, and minor creasing --with several tiny closed tears-- along the panel edges. Still though, very presentable. Thick quarto, 12 lavish full-page color illustrations by Jessie Willcox Smith (with their accompanying printed tissue-guards) complementing Charles Kingsley's classic text. Very Good / Very Good. Item #17897

Price: $150.00
