Kenneth Graham. THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS. London: The Folio Society, 2008. This is the Centenary Edition of the Wind in the Willows, limited to 1000 copies signed and numbered by the illustrator, Charles van Sandwyk, on a special etching tipped on to the limitation page. There were also 30 copies which were hors commerce. In 2005, The Folio Society and Charles van Sandwyk produced a new edition of the Wind in the Willows that was widely hailed. Now, for the centenary of the original publication of Kenneth Grahame's masterpiece, that edition has been completely revisited to produce an altogether new book of superb quality. There are now 16 tipped-in color plates, with gold edges and decorative gold borders, and numerous pen and ink drawings and decorations, 40 of which are new to this edition. New endpapers illustrating Toad Hall have been printed letterpress. The binding is quarter vellum, stamped in 22 carat gold, with vellum tips and paper-covered boards blocked with a design by the illustrator in three shades of metallic foil. The book is housed in a sturdy cloth-covered solander box with a paper label. The result is an altogether worthy successor to the magnificent limited-edition gift books of the early 20th century. 267 pp./Boxed. $1,900.00
