Description: Drawn by W.M. Spratling and Arranged by William Faulkner. Thin 8vo, green boards; darker green printed label. New Orleans: The Pelican Bookshop, (1926). First Edition.

Comments: Of an edition of 250 copies this is number 15 of about 50, signed on the flyleaf by Spratling, and with some of plates hand tinted by him. Spratling has added a presentation on the dedication page to author Kenneth Roberts, whose ex-libris is on the endpaper. The very delicate binding is in fine, original condition, except for inevitable fading of the spine and upper front cover. There is a half inch closed tear in the margin of the title page, otherwise a fine copy of a very scarce book.

Dear Argosy - you've made my day - my order (Netherlands at War, 1940-1945) arrived on my doorstep this morning unheralded and very, very welcome. My sisters and I are Dutch immigrants in New Zealand and we all lived through that war 60 plus years ago as young kids. We had occasion to share what we remembered recently - and now you've supplied the book. I can't tell you what this means... - Dorothea B.
