Treasury of Fairy Tales: In Words of One Syllable

Philadelphia, Pa. J.B. Lippincott & Co., 1870. Hard Cover. 93, [1], 106, 120, 106, 112, 110 p.: 12 leaves of chromolithographed illustrations; 20 cm. Red publisher's cloth with gilt-stamped spine title and black-stamped cover title, and spine and cover illustrations. Former owners' inscriptions and stamp on the front endpapers indicate that Howard E. Studenroth received this as a present in 1902, and A. Light acquired it in 1973. Contains six titles issued as part of the series Famous Fairy Tales published by Allen Brothers (New York, 1869), here issued by J.B. Lippincott & Co. in an undated publisher's binding with the title: Treasury of Fairy Tales: In Words of One Syllable. The Allen Brothers copyrights are dated 1869, which is the only year they seemed to have published under that imprint. Presumably Lippincott bought the rights and issued the series as one volume with no year of publication in the 1870s. Each title (which contains two stories) has a title page with the Lippincott imprint on the front and the Allen Brothers copyright on the back, a chromolithographed frontispiece, and one chromolithographed plate preceding the second story. Contents: Valentine and Orson and Little Red Riding Hood -- Aladdin and Whittington and His Cat -- Robin Hood and Hop-o'-My-Thumb -- Blue Beard and Jack and the Bean Stalk -- Good Two Shoes and Tom Thumb -- Beauty and the Beast and Children in the Wood. In Very Good+ Condition: spine is lightly rubbed; head of spine just starting to fray; cover is bright; pages and illustrations are clean and tight. A very scarce collection of fairy tales. Very Good +. Item #001949
