Author Name    Orczy, Baroness

Title   Old Hungarian Fairy Tales

Publisher    Dean and Sons, London 1895

Seller ID   6087

First edition. Bound in publisher's green, ornately illustrated, pictorial cloth with bevelled edges, and gilt and black lettering to front panel and spine; the spine's gilt has dulled somewhat. All edges gilt - the gilt on the leading edge is a touch scuffed. 95 pp.; with beautiful two-tone coloured illustrations throughout. Generally Very Good condition with noticeable bumping to corners, and rubbing and fraying to spine-ends. Gift dedication to half-title. Else, unmarked, internally clean and securely bound - the front and rear hinges are starting and a couple of gatherings are separating. Pages are showing uniform tanning to margins and just the occasional fox-spot. Overall, a very attractive copy indeed, however. Scarce in its first edition.

Price = 250.00 GBP
