THE THREE MULLA-MULGARS. Walter De la Mare. THE THREE MULLA-MULGARS.
London: Duckworth & Co. 1910. First edition, lacking the tipped-in errata slip and in the assumed remainder green binding. The first, and possibly the most famous, of de la Mare's books for children, started as a series of stories he told his own children. An animal fable of three royal monkeys who travel to find their missing father, and their adventures along the way. This has to be the nicest copy of this book extant. There is very minor foxing on page edges and close to hinges on endpapers, and a small name written on front endpaper, otherwise very fine in dust jacket. An almost new copy.

DESERT ISLANDS AND ROBINSON CRUSOE. Walter. Whistler de la Mare, Rex. DESERT ISLANDS AND ROBINSON CRUSOE.
London/New York: Faber & Faber/Fountain Press, 1930. First edition. One of 650 SIGNED numbered copies with illustrations by Rex Whistler (but not signed by him). Corners just a little rubbed and spine slightly faded, otherwise fine. Three-color, full-page drawing on front endpaper of a gentleman in an easy chair smoking a pipe--an elaborate Christmas greeting which reads, "Seasons Greetings for Sam Brown from S. N. Jenks and E. E. Moore, Dec. 25th, 1938." Both endpapers are offset, but the drawing is very nice (although we couldn't find any information on the "artists").
