A propos de cet article

CONDITION: Good Plus; Christmas inscription written lightly on back of frontis, Lavinia Lauderdale has written her name on the Contents page and made a neat dash after each story in some kind of code, erased but still visible; gilt bright on top board, almost illegible on spine, extrems worn through; a little foxing on a few pages but generally very clean and flat though darkening; several separations showing net but fairly solid with hinges intact, bottom edge gilt rubbed, plates in nice condition, several tissue guards have chips or wear and one tissue guard is missing. New York, London, and Bombay: Longmans Green and Co., 91 and 93 Fifth Avenue, 1903, 1st; crimson cloth boards with tiny flowers, fairies, and a Knight and the Dragon and a standing knight on the spine; pink front endpapers with crimson drawing of fairy heralds in the sky, rear endpapers blue blue green drawing of fairy riding on a bat with drowsing fairy asleep on the moon, gilt all around; 8 tissue guarded coloured plates including frontis, and 35 black and white full plates, all as issued, other drawings in text; 8vo.; 371 pp In an amusing preface, the editor points out yet again that he is not the creator of these stories, as most of his readers seem to think. "Like nature, popular tales are too vast to be the creation of a single modern mind." His wife, Mrs. Lang, actually did the adaptations for most of them so his role has been in ferreting out the interesting and varied world wide tales of this collection.
