YORKSHIRE DALES AND FELLS Painted and Described

(London: A. & C. Black, 1906).

ONE OF THE LESS COMMONLY FOUND TITLES OF GORDON HOME'S BOOKS FOR ADAM AND CHARLES BLACK. In this volume Home lovingly paints and describes the dales and fells and broad acres of Yorkshire. An artist who worked mainly in watercolour and who frequently exhibited at the Royal Academy, Home is noteworthy among illustrators for being equally talented with a writer's pen. Item #29831

First edition. With 20 fine colourplates from the author's own paintings, each with captioned tissue guard, and with a folding map. Large 8vo, in the original red cloth lettered and decorated in a fine English rose motif on both upper cover and spine in gilt and black, t.e.g. [x], 180 pp. A handsome copy of this elusive title, with just a bit of mellowing or age evident, the textblock fresh and clean, one free-fly excised, the binding very well preserved and in good order.
