I have just found out that it is translated and shortened text from the 1930 french publication.
It was published in 1954

The illustrations are not metalcut (or woodcut). I must have confused the illustrations type with the illustrations from "Two years vacation", another treasured book.

The illustrations were made by Zdeněk Michael František Burian
You can see some examples of his work here:
