Book Description
C1920's. A beautiful copy in green cloth covers with extensive gilt & colour design and gilt lettering to upper board and spine. Decorative endpapers, vignette title page, 17 tipped in colour plates plus several back & white line drawings within the text. Overall a little fragile with light marks to rear board, slight rubbing to gilt on upper board - still looking quite bright, light rubbing and creasing to the spine, light bumping to corners and rubbing/fraying to edges and corners. Some movement to upper boards - still attached, and frontispiece plus 2 other plates loose but with all plates present. Overall with clean pages, a touch of foxing to margins, light marks to pages, minor edge tears to bottom of pages and a couple of larger tears. Browning to endpapers and outer edges but with all that said, still a lovely copy. 349pp. 'Few writers can claim to have contributed to the world’ store of folklore, but Hans Christian Andersen, the shy and reclusive Danish writer, was one of them. Inspired by the great tradition of The Arabian Nights and the Brothers Grimm, his magical stories continue to delight, enchant and occasionally terrify. This facsimile of the 1913 edition contains 17 of his most famous tales, including ‘The Emperor’ New Clothes’, ‘The Snow Queen’ and ‘The Ugly Duckling’'.
