About this Item

Potsdam: Verlag Müller & Co., 1920. First edition in German, limited to 150 numbered copies, this being copy no. 99.

Publisher's original vellum with inlaid hand-painted medallion and gilt floral border design by Curt Möller-Fernau on front cover. Original vellum clasps. Vellum very slightly dust soiled otherwise a fine copy of this Dulac rarity.In over fifty years I have never seen another copy of this book in its original binding (DJB)."An sheer beauty of colour Edmund Dulac's illustrations stand easily first among the pictured stories of the year.But little miracles of beauty as these pictures are, Mr. Dulac has the blessed sense of humor that will make its appeal even to small readers on whom, alas! his finer qualities may well be lost.Nothing more purely beautiful has ever come even from Dulac's fairy brush than the picture of Badoura in the arms of Camaralzaman against a background so exquisite as to make one hold one's breath" (The Outlook, November 15, 1913, Supplement XIII, as cited in Hughey)."The message is one of great serenity, of uncluttered order. For this book he has altered his style to follow that of Chinese painting. The result is a very new but mature style, most subtle in both design and colours. None of his work before or after was quite like it" (Hughey).Hughey 31e. Bookseller Inventory # 02812
