Sinbad the Sailor & other Stories from the Arabian Nights

Sinbad the Sailor & other Stories from the Arabian Nights

Condition: Very Good/No Jacket

London: Hodder & Stoughton A very good copy of the 1st trade edition in the original decorative cloth binding with 23 tipped-in colour plates, black and white illustrations and designs by Edmund Dulac. Undated but 1914. The light brown cloth binding has a printed flower design (which continues on the endpapers) overlaid with gilt decoration and titles on the front board and spine. This copy has bright decoration with some light cloth wear - to the corners and the top and bottom of the spine where there is a little fraying. There are some small marks on the back board. The floral endpapers are unmarked. Contents: frontispiece; decorative title; illustration list and text with 22 further colour plates. All the text pages have a decorative border. The tissue guard to the frontispiece is detaching at the top and there is occasional marking to the plate supports at the bottom edge (plates at pp 43, 71, 78 and 113). The plates themselves are unaffected. There is a small triangular chip missing from the bottom edge of p 59/60. A lovely example of an early twentieth century gift book. Please enquire if you would like to see further images.
