A first edition, first printing published by Macmillan in 1902.
A very good copy with one neat contemporary gift inscription. Fading to spine titles. Some rubbing to the edges and to the corners. Front panel is vibrant. Scattered spotting to the endpapers. Thin stain to the bottom of the rear pastedown and rear endpaper. The famous collection of stories including ‘How the Camel got his Hump’, ‘How the Leopard got his Spots’ and the long forgotten story, ‘How the Whale got his Throat’. First issue binding. The white decorative stamping to the cloth famously failed to adhere on the first issue binding, meaning these copies now lack significant portions of it; the paint formula was changed for the later issue, which survives intact.
Rare.
