Royal 8vo. Original mid brown cloth elaborately and decoratively panelled and lettered in gilt with an Art Nouveau design to both covers and spine surrounding a pictorial label to upper board, top edges gilt, others uncut, antique gold endpapers; pp. [vi], vii-xv + [i] + 211; illustrated with 30 fine coloured plates printed on coated stock; both externally and internally uncommonly bright and fresh copy with minor rubbing to cover plate and slight bruising to spine ends; internally very nearly fine with light speckling to half-title.
First edition, presented in the first issue binding, also issued in dark green decorated cloth. A presentation copy inscribed in ink to half-title from the author, "Lawrence from Louey Chisholm, Christmas 1925". A charming collection of sixteen favourite fairy tales including The Snow Queen; The Frog Prince; The Four White Swans and The Christmas Rose. Katharine Cameron studied at the Glasgow School of Art intermittently between 1889 and 1901 and was one of the small group of female students who called themselves "The Immortals", sharing membership with the sisters Margaret and Frances Macdonald, the former of whom married the architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Her illustrative work is characteristic of this local style.
