ANDERSEN, Hans (author). Kay NIELSEN (illustrator). Fairy Tales of Hans Andersen. London, Hodder And Stoughton. [1924].

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 bright copy with gilt gleaming and none of the frequently found dusting to spine, with some dusting and spotting to edges of book block; internally fresh, crisp and uninscribed, with all plates fine.
First edition illustrated by Nielsen, with the loosely-inserted original red-printed flyer advertising the sale of the original artwork for the book, held at the Leicester Galleries. A beautiful interpretation of these classic fairy stories, with a theatrical Art Deco flavour.
