"DULAC, Edmund. A Fairy Garland Being Fairy Tales from the Old French. London and New York: Cassell and Charles Scribner's Sons, (1928). Quarto, original half vellum gilt, top edge gilt, uncut. $1700.Signed limited first edition, number 510 of only 1000 copies signed by Dulac, wonderfully illustrated with 12 full-page color plates by him.Dulac was "one of the central illustrators of the Edwardian period, a time when fantasy illustration reached a peak of sophistication Though Dulac shared [contemporary illustrator Arthur] Rackham's exuberant capacity to create intricately peopled fantasy landscapes, his work was more painterly, and he had an unmatched knowledge of how to use book-production technology to gain expressive color effects" (Clute & Grant, 300). In this volume, Dulac illustrates, in a dozen beautiful color plates, eight fairy tales by Charles Perrault (including Puss in Boots), Mme. d'Aulnoy and Count Anthony Hamilton. Hughey 74. Vellum spine much brighter and cleaner than often found. A lovely copy in about-fine condition.". Bookseller Inventory # 106484
