ARABIAN NIGHTS

(London: Constable & Co., 1917).

AN ELUSIVE AND RARELY SEEN PRINTING OF THIS BEAUTIFULLY ILLUSTRATED CLASSIC. With the wonderful illustrations of Rene Bull. Among all the early printings this is one of the most difficult of Bull’s books to obtain. Bull's ARABIAN NIGHTS provides us with a timeless classic married to exquisite illustrations in both colour and black and white. Many of the fine black and white illustrations are very large and nearly full-page. Item #26800

The first reprint of the publisher's second edition. With tipped-in colour frontispiece and six tipped-in colour plates by Rene Bull, and a profusion of black & white illustrations all throughout the text. Tall 8vo, publisher's original green cloth, decorated and lettered in black on the upper cover and spine, the upper cover also featuring a colour pastedown by Bull. x, 299 pp. A handsome fresh copy, unusually so for war-time paper. The green cloth bright and unfaded, just a little mellowing to the tips and paste-down, hinges firm, the colourplates all very fine, the text clean.
