I would call this book scarce but it is literally the only copy I can find for sale anywhere at time of writing so "scarce" doesn't seem to do it justice. A charming book of fairy stories in the Flower Fairies mould. My Fairy Book, written and illustrated by MM Gell. Undated but looks to be 1920s. With quite a bit of wear but still charming. Has four colour plates. Only 32 pages long but with illustrations everywhere throughout.

Inside the pages have tanning and spotting and the odd nicked edge. It has not been written in and there are no other markings of previous ownership.

Cream papered boards have paste down illustration to the front and brown cloth spine. With some scuffs, staining and marks to the boards. Rubbing around the edges and to corners to reveal boards beneath in places (see final close up photo). So some outer surface wear but the binding remains very good and strong and this is a charming one-of-a-kind book.

Your vintage copy of My Fairy Book will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon* and sent well packaged. I am always happy to include a gift card and message if desired. 

H 26 cm x W 20 cm, 32 pages, 0.23 kg. I dispatch worldwide daily from the UK. (There are just a very few countries which I am unable to ship to). 

* If you would prefer for your book not to be decoratively wrapped and sent simply in the full protective packaging please add a note to the order.
