Fabulous large format original Louis Wain fairy book containing 11 full page colour illustrations, one of which is a double page [see photo] and black and white line illustrations on all of the other pages. Not a story book as such, more a selection of humorous poems and ditties to describe the illustrations. Paper covered illustrated boards [front and rear] over red cloth backstrip. 335x250 mm. 36pp. Corners / edges worn. Scuffing / scratching to boards, chipping to paper overlay at board edges, remnants of handwriting to top of upper board. The paper is lifting from the bottom quarter of the lower board. Professionally rebound, retaining the original backstrip and end papers and with the gutta percha reset. Poor quality early wood pulp paper which is now tanned and heavily chipped page edges. The quality and brilliance of the large colour illustrations is quite superb in this hard to find and quite rare Louis Wain edition.
