Roy Gerrard / CROCO'NILE CROCONILE Signed 1st Edition 1994
With Hidden Messages In Hieroglyphics. Scarce signed first printing of this fabulous color picture book set in ancient Egypt.

Gerrard signed very few books before his death in 1997. Inscribed without name: Best wishes - Roy Gerrard. Spine slightly sunned, else lovely.
