8vo. Original dark red cloth with gilt vignette of a kimono-clad lady carrying a child to upper cover, top edges gilt; pp. [viii] + 231 + [i]; illustrated with 16 beautiful coloured plates in delicate colours; a very bright, and near fine, copy with a weak knock to top forecorner of upper board and a few tiny speckles to fore-edges of book block, internally very clean throughout.

Early reprint of a volume which was originally published in 1910 in a larger format, with a greater number of plates. A soul-stirring collection of Far Eastern fairy tales.
