Kauffer not only designed the covers for this 1944 edition of Green Mansions, but also filled it with lavish full page color illustrations. Featuring 10 full page color illustrations and 23 drawings printed in green as chapter heads, this title is one of Kauffer's greatest accomplishments in the book arts.
Nicely preserved bright illustrations on the interior. Very clean. Some shelf wear to the edges of the boards. No slipcover.
