[1904] This is a very nicely illustrated book by John Hassall of two twins who both wear oversized red berets and whom are both as different as chalk and cheese. The verses in the book, by Edward Shirley, describe the differences between the twins and each page of verse is supported by a full page colour plate, in quite a stylised image where there is always an accent of red, whether this be the beret or a book or a pair of slippers - really nice. There are 24 colour plates in all. Condition: Binding: Re-backed with new blue cloth backstrip; corners and edges worn; some loss to edges of cover paper where it lies over the new backstrip; some browning to front and rear free end papers and some bubbling to the fixed end papers. Personal inscription to front fixed end paper. Contents: short closed tears to nine page edges - repaired with archival tape; a few fingerprint type smudges to the white edges of a few of the plates. 4to - over 9" - 12" tall.
