London: Faber, 1930 This is a wonderful book, arising from the opinion of M.R. James that the existing translations of Hans Christian Andersen's work were not very good. In fact, he suspected that those responsible for the translations to date (1930) were inadequately versed in English (and possibly in Danish is well, as he suspected that those appearing in English were from perhaps German translations of the original Danish). Further, these prior editions were issued while Andersen was still revising and making corrections, and were not taken from the definitive edition. He therefore set out to do justice to Andersen's work, which he very much admired. Add to this the services of Robin Jacques, one of the best illustrators of books that England had ever produced and have the whole thing published by Faber. You will note that the your edition has probably held up quite well, and this would be partially because of the thickness and quality of the paper and the cover that this esteemed… Read more

One fold out chart, The English Experience: Indexes of the Price of Gold, Commodities, and Purchasing Power, 1560 - 1976" has been torn out. The writer explains in the Preface that his lifelong interest in gold began in 1936 with a statistical analysis of the purchasing power of gold "for as many centuries as I could find data." When gold prices dramatically increased in 1968, he asked himself, "Could we better understand what was going on in the present if we knew more about the historical relationship of gold to other prices? Might we find something systematic in its history to give us a more perceptive appreciation of current monetary events?"
