Scarce collection of fairy tales wonderfully illustrated by the Brothers Dalziel, with multiple engravings on each page. The Brothers Dalziel were a highly productive firm of Victorian engravers founded in 1839 by George Dalziel and his brother Edward Dalziel. The Dalziel brothers worked with many important Victorian artists, producing illustrations for the burgeoning magazine and book market of the period. Until the advent of photo-mechanical processes c 1880, they were pre-eminent in their trade. The cover label is a facsimile of a portion of the title page of this volume, as part of the gift inscription appears at the top right corner.

Lot Amendments

Some wear to original wrappers; period gift inscription on top right corner of title page, scattered light foxing and soiling, a solid copy; very good.
