      London: Hodder and Stoughton, [1924]. The beautiful Edition de Luxe, limited and numbered 225 of 500 copies. Signed by the illustrator, Kay Nielsen. With 12 tipped-in color plates and numerous black & white illustrations as frontispieces to each tale all by Kay Nielsen. 4to, the publisher&#146;s original deluxe vellum binding with elaborate gilt pictorial designs on the upper cover and spine. This copy retains the original glassine wrapper, still largely intact and is housed in a folding velvet-lined chemise and morocco backed slipcase designed with attractive raised bands and handsome gilt lettering. 197. An extraordinary copy, pristine and perfect. LIMITED TO 500 COPIES AND SIGNED BY THE ARTIST KAY NIELSEN.<br> This collection of sixteen tales was initiated by Nielsen in 1912, though it was not published until 1924. Hodder & Stoughton, in an effort to promote sales after the war, began publishing gift books again with beautiful illustrations and bindings. This is one of there very best and in the scarcest and most desirable de Luxe format.<br> Nielsen is regarded along with Rackham and Dulac as one of the triumvirate of masters of the illustrated gift book. This is no small achievement considering he only produced four such books in comparison to the dozens of titles produced by the other two gentlemen. Had he more time to enlarge his reputation he may well be considered the greatest master of the genre today. Although frequently compared to Rackham and Dulac his style is very different and altogether unique. Danish born and Parisian trained he was far more influenced by the Art Nouveau. His greatest influences as a student were the Japanese woodcuts of Hokusai and Utamaro and the black and white decorative line work of Aubrey Beardsley.<br> Nielsen was among the most highly regarded illustrators of his day but produced only five books in total. He was lured away from the profession by Walt Disney, for whom he became an animator. These five books are more then enough however to secure his reputation for generations to come. Of the lasting appeal of Hans Andersen&#146;s &#145;Tales&#146; nothing more needs to be said.

        Secret Societies and Subversive Movements *First Edition*

      London: Boswell Printing & Publishing Co., Ltd.. Hardcover. 419 pages. Index. Footnotes. Frontis portrait of Adam Weishaupt. "I have felt impelled to devote one more book to the Revolution as a whole by going this time further back into the past and attempting to trace its origins from the first century of the Christian era. For it is only by taking a general survey of the movement that it is possible to understand the causes of any particular phase of its existence. The French Revolution did not arise merely out of conditions or ideas peculiar to the eighteenth century, nor the Bolshevist Revolution out of political and social conditions in Russia on the teaching of Karl Marx. Both these explosions were produced by forces which, making use of popular suffering and discontent, had long been gathering strength for an onslaught not only on Christianity, but on all social and moral order." - from Preface. Bookplate upon front free endpaper. Last two leaves of index loose but present. Back free endpaper not present. Front board loosely attached. Tiny bit of writing atop last blank page. No other markings noticed. Gilt lettering upon backstrip worn but legible. . Fair. 1924. First Edition.
