Brothers Grimm - Hansel and Gretel and Other Stories - ( Item 126461 )
Published in London by Folio Society. 2017. First Thus. Fine Hardback. No inscriptions or bookplates. Fine solander box. 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.

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.
