Description: An enchanting collection of popular fairy tales retold by Derek McCulloch.

Beautifully illustrated throughout with two-colour monochrome woodcuts (colours vary between orange, red, blue, and green), many of which are full-page. Illustrated pastedowns and endpapers.

Considering its age and purpose, the book is in very good overall condition. The pages are virtually free of foxing (there is a small stain on one page) and are completely unmarked. The rear board is almost immaculate, whilst the front has a crease (refer to image) and light rubbing along the edges. The corners are chipped. The spine has faded where it was exposed to sunlight and there appears to be an inventory number in black ballpoint on the head of the spine.

A lovely copy of a scarce book.

Measures 25 cm × 20.5 cm (10″ × 8.2″). 4to. 125 pp.

Price: £30.00
