What Our Customers Say...

Description

Colour Plates, First Edition, Illustrated, Pleasing Copy, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper

An excellent copy of William Heaton Cooper's eulogy to the tarns of the Lake District. The first edition in its original, unclipped dust wrapper.

The notorious landscape artist captures the varied moods and individual beauty of numerous tarns found in the Lake District.

These tarns, the 'eye of the mountain', are not found easily, but reward those who seek them with a sight of a small sheet of water, tucked away in a fold of a mountain, reflecting the surrounding crags and the deep blue of the sky. 

Each is described by the author with familiar knowledge and egregiously portrayed in brush and pencil. 

Illustrated with sixteen full plates in colour and numerous drawings by the author. Collated, complete.

Condition

In the original publisher's cloth binding. Externally excellent with only minor shelf wear and a minor bumping to the head and tail of the spine.
