This is an auction for THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS by Kenneth Grahame.

With classic illustrations of by Ernest H Shephard.

From Wikipedia:

"The Wind in the Willows is a classic of children's literature by Kenneth Grahame. The story focuses on four animal characters in a pastoral version of England. The novel is notable for its mixture of mysticism, adventure, morality, and camaraderie. The book made Grahame's fortune, enabling him to retire from his hated bank job and move to the country. Grahame spent his time by the River Thames doing much as the animal characters in his book do: namely (in one of the most famous phrases from the book) 'simply messing about in boats'. The book was saved from obscurity by the playwright, A A Milne, who loved the book and adapted it for stage in Toad of Toad Hall. At the start of the book, it is spring, the weather is fine, and good-natured Mole goes outside to take the air. He ends up at the river, which he has never seen before. Here he meets Ratty (a water vole), who spends all his days in and around the river. Rat takes Mole for a ride in his rowing boat. They get along well and the two of them spend many more days on the river, with Rat teaching Mole the ways of the river. Some time later, one summer day, Rat and Mole find themselves near Toad Hall and pay a visit to Toad. Toad is rich, jovial and friendly, but conceited, and tends to become obsessed about things, only to dismiss them later. Having given up boating, Toad's current craze is his horse-drawn caravan..."
