2 Aldin, Cecil Old Manor Houses
London William Heinemann, Ltd. 1923 First Limited Edition Quarter Vellum Very Good 
Copy 142 of 380 copies signed by Aldin, and with an original sketch of dog by Aldin beneath limitation. 4to. 109 pp. Twelve mounted color plates and numerous tinted text drawings by Aldin, who also wrote the bantering -styled text which takes us through six old English manor houses, discussing their history, their charm, their quirks, their legacy, their inhabitants. The text perfectly mirrors and augments the illustrations tinged with a wistful nostalgic charm and perhaps a elusive gauzy quality. Covers are soiled. Some light fox marks here and there but generally the pages are clean and fresh.

3 Aldin, Cecil and John Hassall The Happy Annual

Book. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. N.d., circa 1910 (date of inscription on FFEP). Very rare title with color, four tone generally, illustrations. Unpaginated, 40 pp including title. A potpourri of stories, poems, and humor. The first part is devoted to a quintessential Aldin subject of dogs and foxhunting entitled The Nursery Harriers: The Story of a Hunt, but with a difference inasmuch as the horse is a hobbyhorse. The final pages of the book are devoted to various children's games of the Middle Ages: bowls, tobogganing, skating, sliding, golf, quintain, cricket, football, etc. Also some illustrated nursery rhymes and snippets of other children's classics (Robinson Crusoe, Aladdin). Throughout delightful and less familiar Aldin illustrations, all 14 by 10 inches in size. Soilage on rear boards and to a lesser extent on front board. Blistering to endpapers. Otherwise tight and clean and very good if not better.
