Princess Badoura. A Tale from the Arabian Nights - Laurence Housman, Edmund Dulac (Illustrator)

1913 - Hodder and Stoughton, London - First Trade Edition
A lovely first edition of the History of Badoura, Princess of China, and of Camaralzaman, The Island Prince.

In publishers original white cloth elaborately decorated in gilt and pastel green, with matching endpapers and top edge, the white usually prone to staining and gilt to rubbing, none of which is apparent in this copy.

Wonderfully illustrated by Edmund Dulac with ten full-page tipped-in colour plates, each with captioned paper guards.

Here Dulac equals, and perhaps excels, his Edwardian rival Arthur Rackham with his delicately worked, beautiful, otherworldly arabesques of old Persia.

Your winter garment of repentance fling:
The bird of time has but a little way
To flutter – and the bird is on the wing
