Description:

The Publisher's Copy, No. IInscribed By DulacAnd With An Original Watercolor[DULAC, Edmund, illustrator]. ANDERSEN, Hans [Christian]. Stories from Hans Andersen. Illustrated by Edmund Dulac. London: Hodder and Stoughton,[1911]. Edition de Luxe. Limited to 750 numbered copies, the preeminent copy, Number One, the publisher's copy with an original watercolor on the title page and inscribed by Dulac. Large quarto (12 1/8 x 9 3/4 inches; 309 x 249 mm.). viii, 250, [2] pp. Mounted color frontispiece, with descriptive tissue guard printed in black, and twenty-seven mounted color plates (included in pagination). Plates framed with thick pale green line border and accompanied by guard leaves printed in pale green with stylized pineapples on the recto and border of snowflakes above descriptive caption on the verso. Text pages with pale green snowflake borders at top and bottom. All leaves framed with double pale green lines.Original vellum over boards, pictorially stamped and lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut, later silk ties. Pale offsetting to free-endpapers. Notice for the Leicester Galleries November 1911 exhibition of the original watercolors loosely inserted. Housed in a quarter black morocco slipcase. A spectacular copy, the most desirable and very fine.The preeminent copy, inscribed by the artist, "To J.E. Hodder-Williams / With all best wishes - / Edmund Dulac '11." The watercolor, a brilliant circular miniature of a comely Renaissance princess in profile from mid-torso, is a wonder of precision detail, with face, hair, braids, and decorated collar finely delineated. The color is strong yet at the same time delicate and nuanced. It remains unknown whose face graces the portrait but we suspect that it is of Hodder-Williams' wife, Ethel. When the watercolors were exhibited the reviews were mixed but the opinion of The Studio (December 1911) has proven to have the last word, finding that Dulac combined line and color to perfection and in a way greatly superior even to the work of the highly praised Arthur Rackham. "Stories From Hans Christian Andersen was a splendid achievement which included some of Dulac's most famous illustrations. In an ecstatic review, The Connoisseur acclaimed the Andersen drawings as the best the author had ever received, and praised the originality of conception, the draughtmanship, and the uncanny sense of involvement Dulac seemed to have with the time and place of the stories" (White). Significantly, while copies books by Arthur Rackham with original watercolor drawings are fairly common and available, Dulac illustrated books with an original watercolor (or any kind of drawing) are scarce indeed with only one (aside from the book under notice) coming to auction within the last thirty-five years.During his lifetime, Hans Christian Andersen, whose every fairy tale has become a classic, was second only to Charles Dickens as the most popular author in the Western world."Sir (John) Ernest Hodder-Williams (18761927), publisher, was born on 16 September 1876.John Ernest was given the third baptismal name Hodder and was known as Ernest.He spent a year in Paris and Berlin and attended the English course at University College, London, for one year before joining Hodder and Stoughton in 1894 under the tutelage of W. R. Nicoll. In 1901 he toured North America and studied its book trade. On 4 October 1902 he was made a partner of Hodder and Stoughton.After [Matthew] Hodder's death in 1911 Williams led the firm until the death in 1917 of the surviving founding partner, Thomas W. Stoughton, when he became senior partner.Hodder-Williams's leadership of the firm was enterprising.his personality was magnetic, inspiring loyalty in family and employee" (Oxford Online DNB).Hughey 27a.

Book Description London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1911, 1911. One of 100 Copies Printed on Japanese Vellum Signed by Edmund DulacA Unique CopyIn a Handsome, Unrecorded Variant Binding[DULAC, Edmund, illustrator]. ANDERSEN, Hans [Christian]. Stories from Hans Andersen. With Illustrations by Edmund Dulac. London: Hodder & Stoughton, [1911].Edition de Luxe, limited to 100 numbered copies printed on Japanese Vellum and signed by the artist, this copy being no. 20. Large quarto (12 1/8 x 9 3/4 inches; 309 x 249 mm.). viii, 250, [2] pp. Mounted color frontispiece, with descriptive tissue guard printed in black, and twenty-seven mounted color plates (included in pagination). Plates framed with thick pale green line border and accompanied by guard leaves printed in pale green with stylized pineapples on the recto and border of snowflakes above descriptive caption on the verso. Text pages with pale green snowflake borders at top and bottom. All leaves framed with double pale green lines.Original dark chocolate brown pigskin pictorially stamped with three-peacock design and lettered in gilt on front cover and spine, with Hodder & Stoughton gilt-stamped at spine foot. Top edge gilt, others uncut. Endpapers printed in pale green with repeated design of stylized peacocks. A stunning copy, unique, and arguably the finest copy of the De Luxe Edition. The binding and endpapers do not conform to Hughey's description, and appear to be unique to this handsome copy. As she notes, the pigskin binding, ("brandy colour," not dark chocolate-brown, as here), should only have two thin gilt rules as frame, gilt lettering, date 1911 on spine, and white endpapers, not illustrated as here and in the trade edition. We contacted her for insight. Having seen only two copies of the Edition De Luxe, William Randolph Hearst's and another viewed at a Washington book fair, she reports:"So, where does your copy fit in? And when was it bound? I tend to think it was done close to original printing time, November 1911. There were a lot of oddball copies done then.The title was sold very quickly - all sold by December 1911. The fact that your endpapers are paper available at the time [to the trade edition] tends to date it.It is possible that someone or firm had this done for your copy #20. Your copy's binding design on front cover is clearly an adaptation of the endpapers but I do not think by Dulac as it does not appear in any of his other editions of Hans Andersen's work. Someone may not have liked the plain cover."If that's the case, we'd like to thank them. This special copy is the better for it.Hughey 27. Bookseller Inventory # 01776
