Fabulous large format original Louis Wain fairy book containing 12 full page colour illustrations and black and white line illustrations on all of the other pages. Contains classic fairy tales - Beauty and the Beast, Jack and the Beanstalk, Robinson Crusoe, Robin Hood, Sleeping Beauty and so on. Paper covered illustrated boards [front and rear] over red cloth backstrip. 335x250 mm. 36pp. Corners / edges worn. Scuffing / scratching to boards. Professionally rebound, retaining the original backstrip and end papers and with the gutta percha reset and although holding overall it is delicate and a few of the pages have come loose. This is a problem with the manufacture of this book, mainly due to the poor early wood pulp paper quality which is now tanned and chipped around some of the edges, and just has to be accepted as I feel that too much restoration would detract. The quality and brilliance of the large colour illustrations is quite superb in this hard to find and quite rare Louis Wain edition.
