Illustrated with the most fabulous full page plates (8 color and 20 black and white) plus decorative initials and illustrations in-text. A very unusual book with very strange illustrations. The tree creatures in "Clan" were based upon actual trees found in Cathedral Woods at the artists retreat on Monhegan Island, Maine. The retreat was founded by Rockwell Kent and Waugh was among the many noted artists who spent time there. He had hoped to write a book to rival Alice's Adventures in Wonderland but it did not sell well and the publishers eventually sold the remaining copies which were eventually destroyed. A beautiful copy, rare in the pictorial dustwrapper.
