First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. 11.25" x 9", 184, (3) pp, with 24 tipped-in color plates reproducing watercolors, bound in original yellow cloth with red lettering. Mild spine slant, light dust soiling to boards, lower corners bumped, gift inscription dated 1976 on front free endpaper, otherwise clean.
