Illustrated Swallows and Amazons by Arthur Ransome
Illustrated by Clifford Webb, an English artist, illustrator and writer. The very rare first illustrated edition of Swallows and Amazons with particularly scarce dust jacket by the author of “Swallowdale“.
Original blue cloth boards with gilt lettering on the upper cover and spine. Lean to the book and fading of the spine. Light wear to the spine ends. Illustrated end papers and frontis illustration. The contents are clean with a few spots within the text. Light spotting on the end papers. The very rare dust jacket unfortunately has crude repairs to reverse but better appearance to the front face with spine ends and corners coloured. Otherwise the covers are clean and bright. 8vo 350 pp.
