The manuscript for this work was completed in 1936, and it remained unpublished for nearly 70 years. This first edition also includes a biography of the author by Helen Whitington and a foreword by the Honourable Justice Perry; the superb selection of illustrations was compiled and captioned by Bruce Greenhalgh. This is the trade edition; a very limited deluxe edition bound as one volume in half cream leather and green cloth, with contrasting title-labels on the spine, is available on demand. Contact us for further details. Provenance: Glen Ralph, for his Wilmar Library (identified as such at the foot of each spine).
