What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding

Lady Charlotte Guest, later Lady Charlotte Schreiber, was an aristocrat, publisher and collector who travelled Europe with her second husband collecting porcelain and ceramics, which were upon her death left to the Victoria and Albert Museum. She was also the first publisher of the Mabinogion, the earliest British stories in prose. Lady Schreiber kept a diary for the majority of her life until blindness prevented her. 

The first edition of this work, in two volumes. 

Edited by the author's son, Montague Guest.

With the ownership inscription of Jean Tsushima to the front endpaper. 

Volume I is illustrated with sixty plates, including four in colour; volume II is illustrated with fifty-six illustrations, including four in colour. Collated, complete.

Condition

In the publisher's original full cloth binding. Externally very smart; a touch bumped to the head and tail of the spine and extremities. Internally, firmly bound. Pages have the odd spot.

Very Good Indeed
