A very handsome copy, the rare jacket complete, the fine gilt decorated vellum in excellent condition, the plates perfect, the text -block very fresh with only an occasional hint of the spotting normally seen, the jacket with some evidence of shelving or use having served its purpose well. FIRST EDITION DE LUXE, LIMITED TO 500 COPIES AND SIGNED BY THE ARTIST KAY NIELSEN, IN ITS VERY RARE ORIGINAL DUSTJACKET. This collection of sixteen tales was initiated by Nielsen in 1912, though it was not published until 1924. Hodder & Stoughton, in an effort to promote sales after the war, began publishing gift books again with beautiful illustrations and bindings. This is one of there very best and in the scarcest and most desirable de Luxe format. Nielsen is regarded along with Rackham and Dulac as one of the triumvirate of masters of the illustrated gift book. This is no small achievement considering he only produced four such books in comparison to the dozens of titles produced by the other two gentlemen. Had he more time to enlarge his reputation he may well be considered the greatest master of the genre today. Although frequently compared to Rackham and Dulac his style is very different and altogether unique. Danish born and Parisian trained he was far more influenced by the Art Nouveau. His greatest influences as a student were the Japanese woodcuts of Hokusai and Utamaro and the black and white decorative line work of Aubrey Beardsley. Nielsen was among the most highly regarded illustrators of his day but produced only five books in total. He was lured away from the profession by Walt Disney, for whom he became an animator. These five books are more then enough however to secure his reputation for generations to come. Of the lasting appeal of Hans Andersen’s ‘Tales’ nothing more needs to be said. Bookseller Inventory #
