This late nineteenth century edition draws its style from the contemporary Pre-Rafealite movement. The production is influenced by the sentiment expressed in works by the circle around William Morris in Britain and N.C. Wyeth and Howard Pyle in America.

J.M. Dent, a prolific English publisher, was dedicated to producing fine literature at affordable prices to reach a wide readership. Dent continues this publishing agenda today.

This is a limited edition of 1250 copies.
