Lang, Andrew (ed) - The Yellow Fairy Book - ( Item 137968 )

Published in London by Folio Society. 2012. Reprint. Fine Hardback. No inscriptions or bookplates. Near Fine slipcase. Slight marks to panels of slipcase. Introduced by Maria Tatar. Illustrated by Danuta Mayer. Bound in cloth, blocked with a design by the artist. Frontispiece and 12 full-page colour illustrations. Amongst the 48 stories in The Yellow Fairy Book are much loved classics such as 'Thumbelina' and 'The Steadfast Tin Soldier', but in this volume Lang also included wonderfully exotic tales from Russia, Hungary, Iceland and America. This edition is decorated with Danuta Meyer's pen-and-ink drawings, and her exquisite and arresting watercolour illustrations are full of surprises. They remind us that although fairy tales are full of wonder, for every fairy godmother there is a witch waiting in the wings, for every gorgeous jewel there is a toxic comb and for every 'happily ever after' there is a sad ending.
