The Macmillan Company, New York, 1919. The true first edition of this collection of fairy tales centred around a goat herder, featuring a colour frontispiece, vignettes and illustrated chapter title pages by Dugald Stewart Walker (1883-1937). Reminiscent of the art of Dulac and Rackham, and clearly influenced by the art deco movement, these are truly evocative illustrations. Our copy has a child’s gift inscription in pencil on the front free endpaper, a faded and worn spine with some loss at the tail, and edge wear, especially noticeable at the tips, the front bottom corner having been work through the cloth. The rear boards are lightly stained, but dusty. The cover art remains bright despite this wear, as do the illustrations in the text .
