HOFFMANN, HEINRICH,
Bastian Der Faulpelz.
0. Eine Bildergeschichte fuer Kinder.c.24.5 x 18 cm.; 2 - 24 pp. each with half-page hand-coloured illustration and letterpress verse text, all within a plain ruled border; twentieth-century canvas-backed marbled paper-covered boards; lacking the title-page and the first page, the second page torn with loss to margin and border and mounted on paper, very small marginal loss to last page also, which is mounted on paper too, some spots and finger-marks, two closed tears, but contents generally clean or fairly clean. Heinrich Hofmann, beside his profession of doctor and psychiatrist, was the author of many children's books, including "König Nussknacker" and "Der Struwelpeter". This is one of his most ingenious illustrated stories in verse, a cautionary tale about the importance of learning to read, and the dire consequences for its hero, Bastian, of not trying to. One day when he is playing truant, his dreams are interrupted by a succession of strange people who embody and display the letters of the dreaded word "Faulpelz" ("Lazybones"). He ignores their warnings. Hoffmann believed in teaching children by example, not by precept, which is why his characters so often live out the consequences of their conduct or misconduct to their bitter end. In this tale he is obviously also taking the opportunity to teach his audience some of the alphabet at the same time. Since our copy lacks the title-page (as well as page 1), we have taken the title for cataloguing purposes from another source. We believe this is the edition published in Frankfurt by the Literarische Anstalt, probably between c.1860 and c.1870, the illustrations being coloured by hand. Colour facsimiles of the two missing pages are loosely inserted at the beginning of the volume, which has been restored at some time with great care, and bound using hand-marbled paper for the boards.

JOSEPHUS, FLAVIUS,
Historien Und Buecher
0. 1571.. vom juedischen Krieg .. alles aus dem urspruenglichen Griechischen Exemplar .. verteutscht. Two parts in one volume, Frankfurt, 1571; folio; [5ll] including engraved title-page, [1l.] [blank], 348 ll, with 83 large wood-cut illustrations, + 177 ll. with 14 wood-cut illustrations [making 97 woodcuts in all], final leaf with colophon & large printer's device of Georg Raben/und Weygand Hanen Erben; contemporary pigskin dated 1572, decorative brass bosses and holders for the now-lost metal clasps; the pigskin of the front hinge cracked but holding firmly, slanting crack in the skin on the front board, with slight loss of surface, another small surface hole the size of a small coin on front board; pale library stamp on front blank and verso of last page, scattered marginal library stamps (very small)); contents lightly browned, with a stabhole in c. 80 leaves which affectsa few letters. The front board - somewhat darkened - bears the title in capitals, and the date 1572 in a once dyed or painted central panel; the blind-stamped ornament of the boards is clearer on the brighter rear board: it includes panels of acorns, fleurs-de-lys, and small historical portraits. This copy is made particularly interesting by a contemporary full-page manuscript ex-libris in black, red, yellow, and silver with a full-page armorial crest and the name "Johan Tobing her Leonardes Son" painted directly on to the front paste-down. The name of a much later English owner is written neatly in small letters above, in the top margin. The book later passed to Stoke-on-Trent Public Library, who consigned it with other books to auction in 2006. Text in German.

KINGSTON, WILLIAM H.G [KATE GREENAWAY FRONTISP.],
Infant Amusements;
0. 1867. or, how to make a Nursery Happy. With practical hints to parents and nurses on the moral and physical traing of children. London: Griffith and Farran, 1867; xviii, 183pp. [32pp. catal.] with frontis. and other illustrations, and some musical notation; publisher's brick-red cloth, decorated in gilt and black; extremities partly worn, very slight rubbing & short split (c.5mm.) at head of spine, early ownership entry on fr.f.e.p. Of great interest in itself as an early practical guide in the field of what would now be classified as kindergarten and pre-school education - drawing heavily on German sources - by an author better remembered for his children's stories, this volume is now mostly sought after because its frontispiece is Kate Greenaway's first published book illustration.

ANDERSEN, HANS CHRISTIAN,
The Complete Stories
. The stories of Hans Christian Andersen are known all over the world and he is one of the most translated authors of all time. Andersen's fame rests on his fairy tales and stories, written between 1835 and 1872, among the best known of which are 'The Ugly Duckling', 'The Little Mermaid', 'The Princess and the Pea', 'The Snow Queen', 'The Nightingale', and 'The Steadfast Tin Soldier'. With these fairy tales, inspired by the great tradition of the Arabian Nights and by the brothers Grimm, Andersen became known as the father of the modern fairytale. Moreover, Andersen's works were original. Only twelve of his 156 known fairy stories drew on folktales. This complete collection of Andersen's stories is based on Jean Hersholt's classic translation. His stories have been widely illustrated by some of the best-known illustrators of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, in particular those of the Edwardian period - the Golden Age of illustration - including W. Heath Robinson, Arthur Rackham, Mabel Lucie Attwell, Kay Nielsen and Edmund Dulac. Around ninety of the stories are illustrated with reproductions of original illustrations from classic Edwardian to contemporary illustrators. In addition, there are thirteen newly commissioned illustrations for some of Andersen's less well-known stories. 2005, 976 pages, 60 colour and 30 b/w illustrations, 267 x 164 mm, hardback, 2005. [ heavy book ! ] 1st edition thus, 1st printing. Bottom of spine bumped, otherwise a perfect copy .
