Nine colour plates and black and white vignettes on most of the text pages all by Patricchio. Patricchio was not a prolific illustrator which is a shame as her drawings are beautifully delicate and quite charming. Contains ten stories. Cream cloth covered boards with green titling and a coloured illustration paste down to upper board. Illustrated end papers with fairies and garlands of flowers. 26x21cm. 101pp. Boards tanned and grubby with a few nicks to the paste down. Binding firm. A few grubby finger prints inside. Personal dedication [in pencil] on one of the prelims.
