Dealer Notes
Arthur Rackham’s spooky, spindly illustrations naturally compliment the Brother Grimm’s ethnographic records of folklore from Germany in the 19th century. With tales such as “Hans the Hedgehog”, “The Nose Tree”, or the “Goose-Girl at the Well”, how could it not be a rollick? Lovely illustrations of cats for “The Poor Miller’s Boy and the Cat.”
