About this Item

This unusual publication is composed of folded crepe paper bound with silk string ties. There are 13 unnumbered pages, each of which is actually two uncut pages. There are 10 wood-block color illustrations. This copy is in Very Good (or better) condition: there are no tears or chipping The front cover shows just slight discoloration. The binding is unworn and this copy may have never been read. The translater's name ("Mrs. T.H. James") is printed on the front cover. This copy was found (along with the three other "Japanese Fairy Tale series" listed on ABE) inside the wall of a house being remodelled. Research suggests that this copy is part of a 1932 reissue of a series originally issued in 1891--the type looks too modern. In any case, this is a very nice copy of a unique (probably hand-made) book. Size: 24mo - over 5" - 5" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 000506
