The 1956 First Thus publication of this Stevenson classic. Only Fifteen hundred copies were printed of which this is copy number 631. Printed at the Ward Ritchie Press in Los Angeles. This beautiful edition was designed by Ward Ritchie and it contains fine Illustrations by him. The illustrator has signed the book on the limitation page. The book is bound in a Gorgeous pictorial cloth. The volume is in near fine condition with a few very small spots to the front board. It's matching slipcase, which is made of rice paper shows some roughing to the material and some soiling. I would rate the slipcase at Very Good-. The Limited Editions Club was founded in 1929. It was the creation of George Macy. Its purpose was to create very high quality versions of the classics that were also illustrated by the finest contemporary artists. All Limited Edition Club books are hand signed by the illustrators with a short description of the making of the book on the colophon in the rear of the volume. Only a few were published without a signature because the illustrator had passed away before publication. All LEC books come with a fine decorative slipcase and the great majority of them contain original fine art within.They are finely constructed books printed by the best printers and on fine paper.They are highly collectible.
