[10] + 288pp., 4to. In original quarter-binding, with blue paper boards and cream buckram spine with gilt lettering. A handsome book, profusely illustrated, with 49 plates (some with guards) and the two signed 'Extra Plates', and numerous illustrations in text. Announcement on reverse of first page: 'THIS edition, with an original etching and an original lithograph by Frank Brangwyn, is limited to 65 copies, of which this is No. 41'. The etching, facing p.1, is titled 'A Back Street, Tours', and the lithograph, facing page 180, is titled 'Newcastle'. Both are signed by Brangwyn in pencil. A fair tight copy, on lightly-aged paper, in worn and discoloured binding, with slight damp damage to later leaves (only affecting the margins), and affecting the bottom outside corner of the lithograph (but not touching the image itself). The book itself is uncommon, and this edition with the extra plates is scarce.
