Idyllia [verse by Hugh McCrae, illustrated by Norman Lindsay]

[Sydney, N.L. Press, 1922].

Large folio, [36] pages with a pictorial title page lettered (along with the publisher's device) in gilt, 16 illuminated initials (with the letter in gilt), and 5 large tipped-in etchings with captioned tissue-guards.

Original quarter cream sheep and parchment-covered bevelled-edge boards printed in red and decorated in gilt, all edges uncut; leather a little discoloured with minor surface loss; parchment a little marked and foxed; endpapers offset; occasional light foxing to the deckle edges of the paper; tissue-guards tanned and a little creased, with trifling loss to silverfish to one of them; a very good copy (the original etchings in fine condition) in a custom-made Solander box (half calf and cloth, now slightly marked).

Number 5 of 133 copies (of which only 100 were for sale to the public) signed by Hugh McCrae. The five original etchings, individually numbered and signed in pencil by Norman Lindsay, are 'What the Deer Said'; 'Robin Hood'; 'Pantera'; 'The Yellow Lady'; and 'The Talking Breasts'.
