A deluxe and desirable edition of this treasury of Greek myths for younger readers, illustrated with stunning mounted plates by Russell Flint. Some are dreamy and romantic while others have a tense and dramatic quality. A humble masterpiece of typographic taste and discretion being generously composed within ample margins; the title page was designed by Miss M. Engall and features a classical ornament by Flint. Item #1044

Numbered limited edition of 500 copies. Quarto, green cloth with paper labels, top-edge gilt and others uncut, 12 mounted colour plates (including the frontispiece); lacks one of the printed tissue-guards, bindings slightly marked but still a fine copy.
