THE BLUE FAIRY BOOK Stock code: 8725


First edition, first printing. Beautiful early 20th century binding of blue half morocco over marbled boards. With five raised bands and gilt titles and tooling to the spine. Top edge gilt. The binding shows very well indeed with minor rubbing and bumping to the extremities and some staining to the upper board. The contents are entirely complete and without loose or torn pages. Large previous owner's bookplate to the front pastedown and signature to the front endpaper. The text block edges are quite heavily spotted in places. Bound without ads. The first and scarcest of Andrew Lang's fairy books.
