Brothers Grimm - Hansel and Gretel and Other Stories Limited Edition (Published in by The Folio Society in 2017. Limited to 980 hand-numbered copies of which this is number 428. A Golden Age gift book in facsimile for the first time. Kay Nielsen’s rarest work with his virtuoso blend of folk-tale drawing and Art Deco stylisation illustrating 22 of the best-loved tales by the Brothers Grimm. Full of hope yet suffused with cruelty, exuberantly highspirited yet unflinchingly violent: the tales of the Brothers Grimm have enthralled audiences of all ages across the world since their first appearance in the early 19th century – so much so that only the Bible and the Qur’an have been translated into more languages than the Grimms’ collection of German folklore. Facsimile volume: 312 text pages set in Caslon type. Text printed on Caxton Wove paper. 12 colour plates reproduced from a copy of the first edition, printed on Natural Evolution Ivory paper and tipped on to text pages along one edge, protected with Japanese tissue overlays. 10 black-and-white images printed on Caxton Wove paper. Decorative initials in black and red. Endpapers printed in gold and orange inks. Gilded top edge. Bound in buckram, blocked in gold foil and screen printed in turquoise on front and spine with a design redrawn from a copy of the first edition 12?× 9¾?. Commentary volume: 16 pages set in Caslon type. Printed on Abbey Wove paper. Thread sewn with a cover of Natural Evolution Ivory paper. Cover printed in gold and orange inks to match the endpapers. Printed title label on front. 8¾?× 5??. Presentation box: Bound in cloth specially made to match the turquoise on the binding. Blocked in gold on front and spine with images redrawn from a copy of the first edition. 12¾?× 10? )
