NEAR FINE condition book. Grey-green boards with bright silver-gilt titling to the spine spine and an art nouveau design in silver-gilt to the front board. The dustjacket is overall very good, and complete, but I've categorised it as 'VG Minus' as, although it is clean, bright, and unclipped, there is some creasing and a closed tear to the front bottom/front corner of the d/j. The dustjacket is now in a new protective clear - removable - bookfilm plastic cover and looks Fine. Top edge silver-grey. Internally VERY Clean and Tight with NO inscriptions or marks. This Title was originally published in 1913, and there Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch told the stories. Kay Nielsen illustrated the book beautifully - one of four which established his reputation as an illustrator. He also designed for the Theatre and for Walt Disney in Hollywood. The six stories used here are retold by Anne Carter using as her original source, the 1913 edition. In this reduced edition there are twelve delightful 'art nouveau' style full page colour illustrations, plus the Frontispiece (13 in all) , PLUS decorated headers throughout, and line drawings in the text, etc, all stunning illustrations by Kay Nielsen. The six stories told here are : - 'The Twelve Dancing Princesses' ; 'Rosanie or The Inconstant Prince' ; 'Minon-Minette' ; 'The Man Who Never Laughed' ; 'Felicia or The Pot of Pinks' , and 'The Czarina's Viole'. Purple/White illustrated endpapers and immaculate inside. See Images; Small 4to 9" - 11" tall
