What Our Customers Say...

Description

Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding

'The Golden Age' was Grahame's first collection of stories, which he had previously been publishing in London periodicals. First published in 1895, it is considered a classic of its genre. It takes its foundation as the culture and myth of Ancient Greece, which Grahame using characters from mythology throughout the work. The original publication was not illustrated; it was later reissued with Maxfield Parrish's illustrations in black and white.

Kenneth Grahame (1859-1932) was a British writer, most widely known for 'The Wind in the Willows' and 'The Reluctant Dragon'. 

Illustrated by Maxfield Parrish (1870-1966), an American illustrator and painter who also illustrated works for Washington Irving and Frank L. Baum. With eighteen plates; collated, complete.

A smart copy of the first illustrated edition of this delightful short story collection.
