What Our Customers Say...

Description

Colour Plates, Illustrated, Pleasing Copy, Publishers' Original Binding

Undated. Dated from Copac [1915].

A stunning picture book illustrated by Edmund Dulac. Published for the French Red Cross, to whom were donated all of the profits on sales. This volume comprises fairy tales such as Cinderella, Sinbad the Sailor, Blue Beard, and many others. 

Edmund Dulac was a French British naturalised illustrator. He moved to London in the early 1920s and received his first commission to illustrate the novels by the Brönte's sisters. After the war, the deluxe children's book market shrank, so the illustrator turned to illustrate magazines among others. 

Profusely illustrated with nineteen tipped in illustrations, stunning and bright in colour, by Edmund Dulac, as well as the author's portrait to the rear volume.

Condition
