Amazing first edition Alfred Lord Tennyson’s Lady of Shalott published by Dodd Mead and Co, and illustrated by the famous Howard Pyle. Patterned endpapers. Un-numbered pages. Full color illustrations throughout. Gilt is rubbed, corners and lower spine edge rubbed, spine is soft, fragile but intact, front cover shows wear, has slight warp in the board which might be pressed out with light restoration. Interior pencil signature otherwise clean bright illustrated pages. Plates are clean and bright, one rip in spine cloth. A very early Pyle item - his second book and a noted example of early American color printing in Art Nouveau style. A rare and valuable book worthy of some restoration work.

It was so hard to select only 10 photos of this book as every page is a unique work of art.
