Kenneth Grahame - The Wind in the Willows
Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows.
Methuen edition. 1961. Hardback. Green board with gilt detailing. Illustrated throughout by Ernest E Shepard (of Winnie the Pooh fame).
This compact little book has definitely seen a few schooldays and has that wonderful old book scent. The illustrations are absolutely lovely and it's delightful to see Ernest E Shepard's take on these beloved characters.
Condition: A couple of minor pencil scribbles to the front cover and a pencil has been run down the crease of the spine which has worn into the cloth but not broken the binding. A few minor marks inside. Some yellowing. Still holding together very well despite all it's ben through.
Dimensions: 6.5" x 4.5"
