Allahabad: Messrs. A.H. Wheeler & Co., [1889]. Each is the Indian first edition, one of 1500 copies, in light greenish gray wrappers, illustrated and with titling in black, and with the correct pagination for each. 21.5cm. [Richards: A17, A18, A19]. The back cover of Under the Deodars differs from Richards’ description: instead of a young woman’s face hidden by a fan, the cover depicts a young girl in a dress and hat with a pull toy behind her. The front cover of The Phantom Rickshaw is the second variant, and the back cover depicts two military uniform dressed boys with one playing the fife, instead of a minaret and mosque. The front cover of Wee Willie Winkie is the second variant, the back cover depicts a young woman’s face hidden by a fan, instead of two military uniform dressed boys with one playing the fife. All three bound in three quarter leather and pebbled cloth with raised bands and red morocco title box in gilt on the spine. Spine is rubbed, spine ends worn, joints are starting to crack, edges rubbed; endpapers foxed; text slightly toned; condition of the covers varies with two corners and the fore edge chipped on Under the Deodars; slightly rubbed on The Phantom Rickshaw and with one corner chipped on the bottom cover; slight damp stain to the cover of Wee Willie Winkie; each with slightly darkened edges. Very good copies in a fair to good binding.
