Tanglewood Tales

Nathaniel Hawthorne

London, New York, Toronto: Hodder and Stoughton A very good copy of the 1st edition in the original decorative cloth binding with 14 tipped-in colour plates by Edmund Dulac in greek style. Undated, but 1918 1st trade edition. This was one of the last de luxe colour books illustrated by Dulac as World War I effectively destroyed the market. The production quality is lower - with thinner paper and binding as testament to its production during the last year of the war. The binding is bright and clean. The cloth is bubbled towards the bottom corner of the front board and the spine is lightly pulled. The bottom front corner is slightly bumped and the book overall is a little shaken but sound. The decorative grey endpapers are present, with an armorial bookplate of Adolph H C Wenger to the front pastedown. Contents with tipped in frontispiece, title page and text with 13 further tipped-in plates. The contents are clean and the plates are in very good condition. There is a small splash mark (?tea) to the bottom margin of p 128 and the corresponding plate mount margin (but not the plate).The paper is lightly toned.
