THE CRADLE SHIP Stock code: 13796


First edition. Original blueish green embossed cloth with gilt titles to the spine and oval pictorial onlay to upper board, in dustwrapper. Illustrated with four colour plates by Florence Mary Anderson. A better than very good copy, the binding square and firm with only light rubbing to the extremities. The contents are entirely complete including the tissue guard to the frontispiece. Small neat ink inscription dated March 1917 to the front endpaper with some spotting to the prelims and text block edges. The rare original dustwrapper is rubbed and nicked to the extremities with a chip taking most of the publisher's name and the printed price punched from the bottom of the spine. A very scarce title in first edition, exceptionally so in the original dustwrapper.
