First Edition. With seventy-five very fine and beautiful colourplates from the paintings of Trevor Haddon, each with a captioned tissue-guard, and with a folding map. Large 8vo, in the publisher's original Rioja red cloth, the spine and upper cover lettered and decorated in an elaborate Alhambran motif in gilt, orange and yellow, t.e.g. xii, 210, 4 ads. pp. A very handsome and attractive copy of this rarely seen title, the beautifully decorated cloth is especially well preserved and shows no fading and only trivial evidence of shelving, internally the end-papers are toned as is common with the book, the text is still very fresh, and the plates are very fine indeed. A tiny indention to the top page edge of a small number of leaves and light cosmetic splitting to the rear endpapers. A former college library pocket in affixed to the rear endpaper and discreet and tidy call numbers in white manuscript at the foot of the spine.
