Descripción Golden Cockerel Press, Berkshire, 1956. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Very Good+ [Textblock Fine]. Limited Edition. Minor shelf/edge wear, even sunning at spine, else tight, bright, and unmarred. Purple cloth board, gilt lettering and decorative elements, frontispiece, teg. 8vo. 160pp. Illus. (b/w plates). Numbered limited edition, this being 188 of 500. Designed by Christopher Sandford. Illustrated by Gwenda Morgan. "Among the manuscript note-books of the brothers Grimm are a large number of the fairy-tales they collected with such tireless enthusiasm. A considerable number of these have never been available to the general reader and are virtually unknown. Wilhelm Hansen, director of the Lippe Folk Museum, had access to the manuscripts and selected fifty of these tales for us, tales which Taylor, who made the first English translation, had described as 'most curious' and 'of great merit', but which he felt bound to suppress 'in deference to the scrupulous fastidiousness of modern taste, especially in works likely to attract the attention of youth'. Gwenda Morgan's quaint engravings seemed to compliment these folk tales to perfection." [Cock-A-Hoop]. Nº de ref. de la librería 7184

Descripción The Golden Cockerel Press, [London], 1956. Leather. Estado de conservación: Near Fine. Morgan, Gwenda Ilustrador. Limited Edition. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. 160 p. Signed by Illustrator(s). ONE OF 75 COPIES BOUND IN MOROCCO out of a total edition of 500, this copy SIGNED BY THE ILLUSTRATOR, AND WITH ORIGINAL PROSPECTUS. Per the book's prospectus: "Among treasures sent out of Berlin for safety during the war were the notebooks of Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm. Among the manuscripts are a large number of the fairy-tales collected with tireless enthusiasm by the brothers, and for various reasons a considerable proportion of these are not available to the general reader and [are] virtually unknown. Already in 1823, when Taylor made the first English translation, it was realized that a further selection should be published in English, to contain excluded stories which Taylor described as 'most curious' and 'of great merit'. He had felt bound to suppress them, he wrote, 'in deference to the scrupulous fastidiousness of modern taste, especially in works likely to attract the attention of youth'. The fifty tales now printed in the Golden Cockerel selection are the cream of what we have called the Grimms' 'Other Tales', since none was included in their definitive German edition, nor in Taylor's classic English translation". ***DESCRIPTION: Bound in full purple morocco, gilt vignette on front board of a giant, gilt vignette on the back board of a village with a castle on a hilltop in the distance, top edge gilt, wood-engravings by Gwenda Morgan (N.B., the prospectus and bibliography both state that there are eleven wood-engravings, the title page of the book states ten; we count nine full-page engravings, the publisher's device on the title page, and a headpiece that opens the first tale); printed in Poliphilus type on mould-made paper, octavo size (just over 9.25" tall), pagination: (1)-160; limited edition of 500 copies overall, this no. 35 of the 75 specially bound in purple morocco, signed by the illustrator in blue ink on the colophon page. The prospectus mirrors the title page on the front page, page two has one of the full-page wood engravings, page three the opening of one of the tales with the decorative headpiece, page four tells about the book - the original cost for this book, bound in morocco, was $32.50. ***CONDITION: Near fine overall, with a strong, square text block, solid hinges, perfectly straight corners with no rubbing, the interior is clean and bright, and it is entirely free of prior owner markings; there is some sunning to the spine to a mellow brown colour, some sunning also to the board edges, one extremely small area of light wear to the upper back corner, vintage bookseller's ticket to rear pastedown, else fine. The prospectus is near fine with some toning to the edges and very light overall edgewear. ***CITATION: Cock-A-Hoop 205. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell. Please contact us with any questions you may have, we are here to help. Nº de ref. de la librería 16073003
