TOGETHER WITH BARBER'S ORIGINAL INK DRAWING FOR THE TITLE PAGE laid in. 1 vols. 4to. With Barber's Drawing for the Title Page. "One of the most important books published by Connett." -- Siegel This is the large paper edition of this work. The regular, trade, edition was published at the same time by Windward House, a sporting press started by Connett in 1933. Both editions used Barber's vignette on the the title page. From this drawing it appears that Connett liked the artist's Windward design and used in it the Derrydale edition: in the margin of the drawing Connett has pencilled "reduce 1/4 inch" and the drawing was photographically reduced to the smaller dimension for the large paper copies. A simplified version of the design was used on the Derrydale edition spine. One of the rarest and most desirable productions of the Derrydale Press, and, by virtue of the drawing, a unique copy. Siegel 85; Frazier B-5-a
