Hans Andersen's Fairy Tales

by Hans Andersen

Condition: Good/No Jacket

London: Constable & Co. Ltd, 1917 A good copy in the original red cloth binding with 16 tipped-in colour plates and 35 full page black and white illustrations by W Heath Robinson. The second issue with Heath Robinson's work - the black and white illustrations are particularly memorable. The binding is in fair condition, with pulling to the top and bottom of the spine and bumping and wear to corners. The spine is faded. Internally there is an inscription to the fep dated 1917. The contents are in very good clean condition. There is occasional light spotting which is mostly to top margins, but is visible on the title page and noticeable at pp 48/9 and 95. The stitching is visble at p48, but the book is sound.
