EVERETT, Ethel (illustrator). Old Fairy Tales. London; T.C. & E.C. Jack Ltd. Circa 1945.

Royal 8vo. Original pictorial yellow boards boldly blocked in outlined colours, pictorial endpapers (different at front and rear), preserved in repeat dustwrapper; pp. [52], including endpapers; with half-page illustrations throughout in alternate colour and line; externally fine, internally equally fresh, with some offsetting to free endpapers, protected by a very good dustwrapper with overall dust-soiling and rubbing with a couple of tiny edge chips.
Early edition, with the 5/- printed price to the dustwrapper overprinted 3/6; first published in 1927. This is the publisher's archival copy, with two pencilled alternations to the frontispiece, and title-page spread, to revise the publisher's imprint.
