8vo. Original red cloth lettered in gilt to spine, top edges red, in letterpress Art Deco dustwrapper; pp. [iv] + 368; with coloured frontispiece and 7 other fine, and striking, coloured plates by Nielsen accompanied by crisp black-and-white images throughout with decorative initials, vignettes, and full-page plates; externally fine; internally very clean with minor signs of handling; the unclipped dustwrapper (7s 6d) faded to spine with some browning to lower panel, rubbing to folds, fraying to head of spine, and a few other short closed tears; rare in the dustwrapper.
First edition. Possibly the scarcest of Nielsen's illustrated fairy tale books, particularly complete with the dust jacket.
