    Signed limited edition, number 5 of 500 copies signed by the artist. The richness of the Danish Nielsen's colour images for this lavish illustrated book of Norse pagan mythology was achieved by a four-colour process, in contrast to many of the illustrations prepared by his contemporaries, such as Rackham and Dulac, which characteristically utilised a traditional three-colour process. A near-fine copy of this magnificent work, hard to find in such good condition. Quarto. Publisher's full vellum, decoration and titles in gilt direct to spine, decoration to front board in gilt within blue rules, top edges gilt, others untrimmed, pictorial endpapers heightened in gilt. With the original white watered paper-covered slipcase. With 25 tipped-in colour illustrations by Kay Nielsen mounted within gilt and black frames, with captioned tissue guards and many other black and white drawings throughout the text. Silk ties detached and loosely inserted, the binding otherwise sharp, internally clean, the illustrations bright. A near-fine copy.

    Signed limited edition of one of the most important and impressive books of the Golden Age of book illustration. One of 500 numbered copies, this is number 41. Quarto, original vellum, gilt titles and decoration to spine and front cover gilt, top edge gilt, pictorial endpapers. Signed by the illustrator Kay Nielsen. With 25 tipped in color plates. In near fine condition. A very nice example. Laid is the original notice for the Leicester Galleries exhibition held in November and December of 1914, where the watercolors for this book were offered for sale. "Kay Nielsen was a brilliant colorist and a highly decorative illustrator, able to introduce images that were sometimes strikingly fantastic. [The style] was uniquely his own, and his depictions of fairyland less sombre than Rackham's. By general consent, Nielsen's most spectacular and celebrated book is East of the Sun and West of the Moon, old tales from the North, translated from the Norwegian of Peter C. Asbjornsen and Jorgen Moe (devoted collectors of Scandinavian folk lore in the mid-19th century). Nielsen's unique style and talent for combining the eerie and fantastic with beautiful decorative effect was at its peak with this set of illustrations. Drawing in pen and ink, enhanced by watercolour, with an immaculate technique, Nielsen's beautiful books were always embellished with his designs for endpapers, frieze-like patterns, initial letters, and other decorative motifs" (Dalby, 90).
