Detailed Information for Seller's item number: 12108
In Powder and Crinoline: Old Fairy Tales.
Author: Quiller-Couch, Arthur; illustrated by Kay Nielsen.
Publisher: London: Hodder & Stoughton, No date [1913].

First Edition LIMITED EDITION, #151 OF 500 COPIES, SIGNED BY THE ILLUSTRATOR. Quarto in full green vellum decorated in gilt. 163 [164] pages. Illustrated by 26 tipped in color plates by Kay Nielsen with captioned tissue guards (the trade edition had 24). Top edge gilt, others untrimmed. This was the Danish illustrator's first book upon moving to England in 1911 and the idea and design were his. Dalby, Golden Age, p. 89-90. Horne, p. 334. The style is suggestive of the Middle East, but very original. This production is sumptuous. The untrimmed edges are a bit soiled; the endpapers are lightly soiled and very lightly foxed; the front fixed endpaper is rippled at the edge from the bowing to the front cover. While this bowing is moderately severe, this behavior is typical in this dry climate. The vellum may very well relax a bit in higher humidity. The covers are lightly extremity worn; the front cover has two dime-sized spots of fading (source unknown), and the back cover has some surface scratches and a deeper scratch (more likely a bump) of about an inch long. Otherwise a clean, sound copy. Hardcover Hardcover Very Good

Price: US$4,750.00. Quantity available: 1.
