THE ALLIES' FAIRY BOOK
No author listed. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham.
Stock no. 2138091
Published by William Heinemann. 1st 1916. Almost very good condition.

A contribution to the mood of patriotism and co-operation between the Allies during WWI, Rackham departs from his usual style in that this book is full of images which thrill and inspire but which do not terrify. Reports coming back from the Front were enough to suggest that this time the Allies could be spared violent images with their family reading at home! Blue cloth, gilt vignette. Introduction by Edmond Gosse. 13 tales. 12 colour plates plus b/w illustrations. 122 pages. 8 x 6". Spine is bumped and quite browned. Damp staining to rear cover, which shows through to around page 119 internally. Heavy foxing to prelims and outer page edges. Some margin marks. All plates present.
