The Fairy Book - The Best Popular Fairy Stories Selected and Rendered anew by Warwick Goble

£75.00

Product description

The Fairy Book – The Best Popular Fairy Stories Selected and Rendered Anew – Illustrated by Warwick Goble
Author: Dinah Craik Illustrator: Warwick Goble

The Fairy Book – The Best Popular Fairy Stories was originally published in 1913. It is a collection of classic children’s tales, compiled and edited by Dinah Craik, and illustrated by Warwick Goble.

In the words of the author, it is intended as ‘the best collection attainable of that delight of all children, and of many grown people who retain the child-heart still – the old-fashioned, time-honoured classic Fairy Tale. It includes the narratives of ‘Sleeping Beauty’, ‘Cinderella’, ‘Beauty and the Beast’, ‘Tom Thumb’, ‘Rumpelstiltskin’, ‘Snow White’, ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ and many more.

Warwick Goble (1862 – 1943) was an illustrator of children’s books, who specialised in Japanese and Indian themes. The son of a commercial traveller, he was educated at the Westminster School of art, and specialised in chromolithographic printing.

His work is delicate in its colouring, and masterful in its presentation of line and form. Some of Goble’s best known works include illustrations for Charles Kingsley’s The Water Babies, Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island, and H. G. Wells’s The War of the Worlds.

The book condition is used good with the cover showing shelf wear only to the corners and along the bottom edges as is expected from a book of this age. Internally there is some marbling on the front and back pages from the damp, with a little foxing to the edges also. Other than this al other pages are in excellent condition with no marks or stains.

This book is highly collectable and sold at a great price by OXFAM in comparison to other sellers.
