The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame. With the immortal illustrated characters, Toad, Rat and Mole by Ernest Shepard (same illustrator as Winnie-the-Pooh). Published in 1965 by Charles Scribner’s Sons. In Original Dustjacket.
This edition illustrated by Ernest Shepard has been the outstanding favourite. Whether you’re a dedicated collector or a newcomer to the adventures of Toad, Rat, and Mole, this beautifully illustrated edition is a must-have addition to your library.
All 259 pages are tightly bound, clean and secure to the hinge. The binding is in remarkable condition, showing only minimal signs of wear that are consistent with its age. Slight wear along outer edges of the original dustjacket (See image in gallery area for example of this). The book’s green cloth boards are not only a testament to its vintage charm but also a nod to its enduring elegance. It not only preserves the book’s historical aesthetics but also hints at the lush landscapes and adventures that await within its pages.
