While he read she sat on the floor under the table, silent as a mouse, hidden from Andersen's view by the tablecloth --- a little scene illustrating his well-known reluctance to be treated chiefly as a writer for children, but also providing a subject in which, had he known it, he would have found just such another incident as he had so often turned to account for one more of his immortal children's stories." (Introduction by Arthur Rackham)."The Observer invited Hugh Walpole to choose the best picture-book of 1932. 'I give the prize without hesitation to Rackham's Hans Andersen,' Walpole replied. 'He has risen nobly to his subject. He has acquired a new tenderness and grace. His fantasy is stronger than ever.'.(Derek Hudson, Arthur Rackham His Life and Work. pp. 133, 134).The fairy tales in this volume include: "The Ugly Duckling", "The Shepherdess and the Chimney-Sweep", "The Swineherd", "The Steadfast Tin Soldier", "Old Luköje", "The Tinder-Box", "Thumbelina", "The Princess and the Pea", "The Little Match Girl", "The Little Mermaid", The Emperor's New Clothes" and others.Latimore and Haskell, p. 68.

Some very minor soiling to spine and covers otherwise a near fine copy. Housed in a blue cloth slipcase.Danish illustrator and designer Kay Nielsen (1886-1957) "was drawn early on to fairy tales and illustrated many volumes for Hodder & Stoughton: In Powder and Crinoline (1913), East of the Sun, West of the Moon (1914), Hans Andersen's Fairy Tales (drawings completed in 1912, but first published in 1924), Hansel and Gretel (1925), and Red Magic (Jonathan Cape, 1930), a collections of fairy tales from around the world. Nielsen's designs unite strong linearity with delicate colouring? Characterized by a sense of two-dimensional flatness, Nielsen's objects and people are highly stylized: foxglove blossoms hang in measured asymmetry; princes and princesses stand on improbably long legs; and their garments billow in gravity-defying parabolas. The power of his illustrations lies in his uncanny ability to retrieve a story's emotional effect on its reader and to recreate it visually in two dimensions" (The Oxford Companion to Fairy Tales).
