1893. ***Copy of photos, personal formats, graphics, or text is prohibited. Ebay may drop listings with infractions. I review content regularly. Deluxe Limited Editions Tales of Hans Christian Andersen Author: Illustrations by Arthur J Gaskin Description: This beautiful re-creation of the 1893 edition is limited to only 400 hand numbered copies. There have been a number on the market due to an influx of downsizing belongings in the American household and a change of generational collectors. But this edition will once again become a near impossible get sometime in the future. It features all 100 of the original illustrations by Arthur Gaskin. The leather is the rich, white, almost glove like leather seen on numerous Easton Press white leather Deluxe Editions. A beautiful oversized edition at over 10" tall! --- Arthur Gaskin belonged to the Arts & Crafts movement similar to William Morris and in my opinion the influence and similarity is obvious, drawing on medievalism, the Pre-Raphaelites, and Neogothic stiles. That would also include some similarity to Edward Burne-Jones. My own set resides next to my several editions of Kelmscott Chaucer. Note that photography of all-white subjects, particularly in shiny plastic, is somewhat difficult for a camera moron like me. My photos don't really do it justice! Condition: SEALED in original plastic, with original shipping box. This Fine Leather Book Features: Top grade, gold embossed/ornamented leather Gilded page ends to protect against dust and moisture Decorative end papers Acid neutral archival paper to last generations.
