Once again I thought I was buying an extra of a book I already had. This edition has fewer illustrations, in fact one-third of the number in the other edition from Ward and Lock. It is in excellent condition. The texts and illustrations are identical with their counterparts in the other 1924? edition. See my comments there. This book is done in a larger format and so adds several frames around each illustration (white/beige/white), whereas there is only white in the thicker but smaller edition just above. Marjorie James' Catalogue 27 says two things about this Sunshine Series edition: Rountree's most celebrated plates and Although twenty-two b/w illustrations are listed on the title-page, this version, as issued, has no b/w plates. Her copy, without date, has a 1939 inscription.
