In very good condition here is a scarce copy of Folk Tales From Many Lands, Re-Told by Lilan Gask. Richly illustrated and decorated by Willy Pogany. Originally published in 1910, this copy is a 1929 reprint by George Harrap & Company, London. Includes tales from all over the world, including a Russian version of Snow White or The Snow Maiden.

Contents: The Story of the Ten Sources; Silence!; The Bell of Atri; Snow-White; Godfrey the Little Hermit; The Two Gifts; "Better Than That!"; Aicha's Stratagem; The Emperor and the Abbot; Yvon and Finette; Prince Ivan and the Grey Wolf; A Slice of Tongue; Saint Christopher; The Basket of Flowers; The Monk and the Bird of Paradise; The Farmer and the Noses; The Mouse Tower; The Four Seasons; The Golden Fish; The Shepherd and the Dragon; The Two Brothers; The Three Lemons; The Bar of Gold.

Inside the pages are clean and tightly bound. Has a prize bookplate on the front paste down dated 1934, but no other writing or markings of previous ownership. With a slight dent to a few of the pages on the top edge, giving them a few nicks and chips, but minor. There are superb colour plates, a number of line drawings and wonderfully ornate decorative initials, all by Willy Pogany.

Light brown cloth covered boards have bright and colourful decoration to the front and spine. All in absolutely superb order, with no condition points to note. Included will be a protective plastic sleeve to help keep the boards in this top condition.

Your antique copy of Folk-Tales From Many Lands will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon* and sent well packaged. I am always happy to add a gift card with a message if desired.

H 20.5 cm x W 16 cm, 256 pages, 0.61 kg. I dispatch worldwide daily from the UK. (With the exception of a small number of countries).

* 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.
