First Edition, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding, Very Scarce

The first and only edition of this work. Very scarce and very appealing. Last seen at auction ten years ago. In the publisher's original illustrated boards. This work was issued by Perrier Water, with their copyright and logo to the verso of each leaf. The illustrator of this work, Charles Crombie, was an editorial cartoonist. He produced many humorous postcard cartoons such as 'The Rules of Golf' which was first published by Perrier in 1906.
