What Our Customers Say...

Description

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

Undated. Dated from Copac [1915].

A charming 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. 

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