4to. Original powder blue cloth elaborately and pictorially blocked in gilt to spine and upper board, decorated honey-coloured endpapers; pp. [x], 11-197; with 12 coloured plates mounted-at-large and protected by captioned guards and drawings, historiated initials, border designs and other decorations throughout, in sepia; a fine, very bright, copy with a little dusting and spotting to edges of book block; internally fresh, crisp, and uninscribed, with all plates fine.
First edition illustrated by Nielsen, with the original loosely-inserted flyer advertising an exhibition of Nielsen's original artwork for the book, held at the Leicester Galleries. A beautiful interpretation of these classic fairy stories, with a theatrical Art Deco flavour.
