(WILLIAM HEATH ROBINSON). HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN.
Danish Fairy Tales and Legends. With a Memoir of the Author and with Sixteen Illustrations by W H. Robinson. HEATH ROBINSON IN FULL MOROCCO
"Alexander Gardener, Paisley, 1910" "8vo., First Edition thus, with 16 plates; handsomely bound in burgundy full morocco, back gilt with five raised bands, second and fourth compartments lettered and ruled in gilt, all other compartments tooled and ruled in gilt, uncut, pictorial gilt from original upper board and backstrip preserved and mounted on new and separate leaves, a most attractive copy ideal as a gift or for presentation. With 2pp publisher's catalogue bound in at end. The first English edition of Andersen's 'Eventyr' was published by Pickering as 'Danish Fairy Tales and Legends' in 1846. The fourteen tales contained therein were translated by Mrs. Howitt. In 1952 the scarce second edition appeared, containing forty-five tales and at the time the sole complete collection in English. The translations were made from the original Danish and not from any of the later German versions. Enhanced by Heath Robinson's inimitable illustrations, this edition comprises a verbatim reprint of the fourteen tales of the 1846 edition and the remaining thirty-one tales of the second edition of 1952. A lovely copy of a scarce work."
