'A new translation', 'unabridged edition'. Contemporary full green calf with gilt 'Hull Grammar School' crest to the upper board. Decorative gilt borders. The spine with five raised bands, gilt devices to the compartments and titles in gilt. Marbled endpapers. A very good copy, the binding square and firm with inconsequential cracking to the rear hinge, a little rubbing and fading to the spine and some minor marking to the boards. The contents with a contemporary school prize presentation bookplate to the front pastedown, a minor crease to the corner of the front free endpaper, and some scattered foxing and occasional finger-marking to page edges are otherwise in very good order.
A nicely bound late nineteenth-century copy of Andersen's Fairy Tales.
