What Our Customers Say...

Description

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

Undated. Dated from Copac 1916. A stunning volume illustrated by Edmund Dulac. 

An excellent collection of fairy tales from across the world. Comprising The Buried Moon, The Serpent Prince, The Blue Bird, 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. 

Condition

In the publisher's original cloth binding, illustrated and with titles stamped in blue and black to front board and spine. Externally very smart with minor shelfwear and slight bumping to head and tail of spine. Internally, frontispiece and title page disbound but present, binding is slightly loose but firm otherwise. Pages are bright and clean with the odd spot. With frontispiece and fourteen tipped in illustrations.

Very Good
