About this Item

"Cicely Mary Barker's Flower Fairies books, published in the first half of this century, are known and loved around the world. They were created by a quiet, inassuming and dedicated artist, who was nevertheless remarkably successful, spending her life illustrating many children's books and selling hundreds of watercolours and pastels. Today, twenty years after her death, her work continues to offer delights that have stood the test of time.This collection of her Fairy works offers a nostalgic glimpse into the Romantic Age, each illustration suggesting that beyond the natural work so truthfully depicted in her paintings, there might co-exist another, usually invisible, world of the fairies." This book has 191 pages and is profusely illustrated. The dust jacket is NOT price clipped {U.S. $25.00}. Overall, this is a FINE copy of this SCARCE title. Bookseller Inventory # 020720
