About this Item

Octavo. (15)ff. Book of Chinese folktales featuring nine illustrations cut in black paper and adhered to heavy cream paper, including the title-page text and decoration. Each illustration faces a short text in English, printed on translucent embossed paper. The stories range from fairy tales to moral fables, and the silhouette images of humans, beasts, and landscapes, both mundane and mythical, bring life and charm to the texts. Stab-sewn in tapestry cloth covers, depicting a Chinese seaside landscape with pagodas and ships in the water. Poor-quality paste-downs are brittle and chipping, but text block is clean and sturdy. Fine. Bookseller Inventory # 25926
