About this Item: Raphael Tuck & Sons, London, Paris and New York, 1904. Hardcover. Condition: Good. First Edition. Among the scarcest of Wain's works! Only four copies located on OCLC First Search (Harvard, Princeton, Toronto Public, British Library). Folio, 33.5 by 24.5 cm. Unpaginated, title, 35 pp. 12 color plates of feline doers, along with text illustrations on all other pages. Stories recatted include "The Forty Thieves", "Jack The Giant-Killer", "Robinson Crusoe", "Bluebeard", "Robin Hood", "Cinderella", "Red Riding Hood", "Aladdin", "Sinbad the Sailor", "Jack and the Beanstalk", "Sleeping Beauty" and "Beauty and the Beast". The illustrations are incomparable -- as inspired as any by Wain. And not to be given short shrift are the clever verse adaptations by Chesson. The thick paper is heavily age toned and brittle, with a few chips. The text block, originally bound with gutta percha, is now solid thanks to a rebinding. The chromo board pastedowns heavily soiled. Some small holes in the cloth spine. Original endpapers, with rear FEP missing, and substituted is a plain sheet. Seller Inventory # 004829

About this Item: Raphael Tuck & Sons Ltd. [1904], London - Paris - New York, 1904. Hardcover. Condition: Good. Louis Wain (illustrator). First edition. Fabulous large format original Louis Wain fairy book containing 12 full page colour illustrations and black and white line illustrations on all of the other pages. Contains classic fairy tales - Beauty and the Beast, Jack and the Beanstalk, Robinson Crusoe, Robin Hood, Sleeping Beauty and so on. Paper covered illustrated boards [front and rear] over red cloth backstrip. 335x250 mm. 36pp. Corners / edges worn. Scuffing / scratching to boards. Professionally rebound, retaining the original backstrip and end papers and with the gutta percha reset and although holding overall it is delicate and a few of the pages have come loose. This is a problem with the manufacture of this book, mainly due to the poor early wood pulp paper quality which is now tanned and chipped around some of the edges, and just has to be accepted as I feel that too much restoration would detract. The quality and brilliance of the large colour illustrations is quite superb in this hard to find and quite rare Louis Wain edition. Seller Inventory # 0001003
