By Max Beerbohm. William Heinemann, London; 1921. 1st edition. Illustrated with 51 tipped-in plates by Max Beerbohm. Red cloth with gilt titling. Unpag. Small 4to. Very good+.
Excellent collection of Beerbohm’s caricatures of notable people, including Joseph Conrad, Lloyd George, Hilaire Belloc and others, as wel as humorous scenes. Each of the 51 tipped-in plates is protected with a captioned tissue-guard, and the volume with a preface by the artist. Mild wear and bumping to the corners, with a small smudge to the front cover. Some offsetting to the prelims, but else a fine interior.
