Description

This is a collection of stories and reminiscences of Kenneth Grahame’s childhood. This is the first edition with illustrations by Maxfield Parrish. The plates were reproduced in half-tone as the publisher was not happy with the color reproductions. Some of the colored versions were subsequently published in The Illustrated London News from 1910-13. There were several binding variants. This is from one of the illustrations in Dream Days, uniform with that volume. Read online at archive.org.

This book is the Main Edition.
