Lot 31 of 265: Timlin, William M. The Ship That Sailed to Mars. George G. Harrap & Co., 1923. 4to, org. parchment-backed boards; 48 tipped-in coloured plates. First edition. As with many children's' classics this was started by architect and illustrator Timlin as a diversion for his son. It grew into book form and Harrap, impressed by the beauty of design, decided to use the original manuscript for the text, rather than typesetting.
