This is the second volume of Kenneth Grahame’s reminiscences of childhood. It includes the well known story of The Reluctant Dragon. The illustrations by Maxfield Parrish were in color and so printed in the periodical printing in The Illustrated London News in the 1910’s. John Lane, the book publisher was not satisfied with the original color plates for the book edition and instead published them in black and white by photogravure. There are variant bindings and even a version with only six plates. Read online at archive.org.
