First edition thus, first printing. Limited to 500 copies, this being number 71. Original green quarter leather with cream cloth-covered boards, gilt titles and decorations to the spine. Top edge green. Housed in the original slipcase. Illustrated with 28 black and white drawings by Gregorio Prieto. A very good copy, the binding square and firm, the leather with some patches of wear and minor loss to the spine. The contents, with a previous owner's gift inscription to the front free endpaper and a few faint spots to the text block edges, are otherwise clean and bright throughout. The paper-covered card slipcase is sound but lightly rubbed and with some water stains.
