Hansel and Gretel and Other Stories by the Brothers Grimm.
London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1925. Signed limited first edition. Quarto, original three quarters orange cloth over marbled boards, patterned endpapers. Number 470 of 600 copies signed by Kay Nielsen. Illustrated by Kay Nielsen with 12 mounted color plates, and black and white illustrations. In very good condition. Nielsen's place in history has become universally acknowledged and his name is invariably invoked as one of the deities of the golden age of illustration, alongside such immortals as Arthur Rackham, Walter Crane and Edmund Dulac... [Hansel and Gretel] would prove to be his last great work. The pictures show a still-evolving artist; they are slightly less formal, demonstrating perhaps a folk-art influence, with greater use of color" (Silvey, 488).
