[Walter Crane] A Floral Fantasy in an Old English Garden, set forth in verses & coloured designs

Crane, Walter
London
Harper & Brothers
1st ed. 1899
Decorated full cloth, with dustjacket, bound as a blockbook, 46 pp.
All pages printed from woodblock engraved by Edmund Evans, after designs of Walter Crane. Every page is printed in color, except the endpapers, which are again engraved.

Very good: all the pages loose from the spine (as is often the case in these bindings), but inside fine: crisp and clean. The cover and dustjacket are quite foxed, but inside almost without foxing. The dustjacket is missing a part at the tail of the spine, the rear of the dj. has a tear in the lower part.

Very rare with the original dustjacket. Although the jacket itself is not in the best shape, the book itself is very handsomely printed in attractive colors.
