The Twilight of Magic

New York: Frederick A. Stokes Co., 1930. First edition. 8vo, 303pp. Illustrated endpapers, full color frontis, black and white vignette and full page illustrations throughout, all by Lois Lenski. Publisher's purple cloth with pictorial paper onlay on upper board, and paper spine label. Spine cocked, page edge soiled, else nearly fine and bright. Illustrated jacket which matches the endpapers has some shallow chipping at spine ends, corners, and along folds. Spine a bit sunned, and rear panel soiled, else a very good example. Original price of $2.50 in tact.

The only book of Lofting's illustrated by someone other than himself, in this case being a somewhat early and certainly beautiful example of Lenski's work in illustration.  It is tale for older children full of magic, castles, kings, and knights in Medieval England.  The jacket is uncommon.
