Milo Winter's illustrations are very bright and colourful, and the images are well produced. D'Artagnan and his Musketeers' heroic and idealistic escapades are wonderfully presented on these vivid plates. The Windermere Series Edition. With eight bright, evocative colour plates and illustrated endleaves by Milo Winter. 8vo, publisher's original blue cloth, the upper cover lettered in gilt and with a pictorial paste-down within a gilt frame, the spine gilt lettered, pictorial endpapers. vi, 547 pp. A very good and fresh copy, clean with just a touch of age mellowing. The cloth with light evidence of age to the extremities but still attractive and appealing, the gilt on the spine a bit mellowed down, the inner front hinge a tad shaken.
