1 Will Kidd Dickydidos - The Story of Two Little People and a Dog
London Grant Richards 1903 First Edition Hardcover Very Good Will Kidd 
22 full page chromolithograph plates plus chromo frontispiece. Exceptional illustrations and an extremely rare children's book. Plates are very large, folio (c, 32 x 25 cm.) in a clear, almost naive style. Chromolithography by Thos. N. Storer, Nottingham. Kidd was an artist at the beginning of the 20th century but he was not that prolific - the British Library only has three books illustrated by him. 94 pages - layout with plate facing text and then blank pages in between. Specific condition: Binding: The spine has been replaced with a new backstrip and the original end papers largely retained. Corners worn and paper cover has been rubbed off in two places on rear cover. Generally grubby on the outside. Interior: A few minor tears repaired with archival tape and the occasional grubby mark, othewise very good. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. 
Price: 425.00 GBP
