Extremely scarce. At time of writing I cannot find another copy for sale anywhere. Indeed I can only find one other historical record of the book at all. It was privately printed for the author by Grant Richards of London in 1914. 

Lady Ann's Fairy Tales by Catherine Milnes Gaskell. With twelve superb colour plates by Maud Tindall Atkinson. A fairly large format hardback and in good condition.

Inside the pages are clean, bright and tightly bound. Has some tanning/spotting to the endpapers but none in the text. With a couple of nicks to pages on the bottom edge. All of the twelve super colour plates are present and in good condition. Has gilt along the top edge, with a fair amount of spotting to the other two sides. This copy has not been written in and there are no other markings of previous ownership.

Cream cloth covered boards have shiny gilt titles and decoration to the front and spine. The cream cloth has spotting around the edges and just the odd very faint mark. Overall very clean and bright. A lovely book.

Your antique copy of Lady Ann's Fairy Tales 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, 258 pages, 1.2 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.
