- DOYLE,RICHARD. THE STORY OF JACK AND THE GIANTS. Lond: Griffith & Farran 1858. 8vo, 56p., red cloth stamped in blind and gold, all edges gilt, slight cover soil, near Fine. New edition. Although originally written in 1842, it was not published until 1851 by Cundall. Printed with care by the Dalziels, this features 35 illustrations by Doyle including 8 incredible full page hand-colored plates depicting a ferocious giant. This was the first fairy tale written by Doyle and is quite scarce in this early version, usually only found in the posthumous 1888 manuscript facsimile. Very scarce and a beautiful copy.
