Seller ID:   0001168

Contains 12 full page chromolithograph illustrations - all very vibrant and strong colouring - and black / white wood-cut illustrations on all of the text pages. Possibly based on historical fact dating back to the 14th century [or even earlier], Browning wrote this extended poem of the Hamelin legend in 1842, after the Brothers Grimm had written their folk tale in 1816. There are many illustrated versions of Brownings poem, but this has to be one of the better ones with Butler-Stoney's wonderful characters with such expression. Unfortunately Butler-Stoney did not illustrate that many children's books and that is indeed a shame. Coloured pictorial boards over a red cloth backstrip. 210x270 mm. 26 pp. Nister number 1506. Very slight movement in binding. Altogether a very good copy with all illustrations in vibrant condition.
