East of the Sun and West of the Moon
London: Hodder and Stoughton,, [1914]. Quarto. Original blue cloth, titles and pictorial decoration to spine and front board gilt, pictorial endpapers. Housed in a tan cloth slip case. Tipped-in colour frontispiece and 24 colour plates with printed tissue-guards. Spine sunned, very minor wear to spine ends and tips. An excellent copy. First Nielsen edition, first impression. The richness of Nielsen's colour images for this lavish illustrated book were achieved by a four-colour process, in contrast to many of the illustrations prepared by his contemporaries, such as Rackham and Dulac, which characteristically utilized a traditional three-colour process.
