With an introduction by Alexander Woollcott, and Tenniel's original in-text illustrations to the Alice books.

“Whilst
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass were intended for children “fresh from God’s hand”, it is equally enthralling and delightfully magical for adults as they follow Alice on her vibrant adventures escorted by her famous companions. Who can possibly not have been carried away into the fantastically crazy world of the Mad Hatter? Or never have heard of Tweedledee and Tweedledum? Who cannot have been struck by Carroll’s love for sophisticated play with words?.” - Stephanie Chan.

Edmund Dulac's Fairy-Book - Fairy Tales of the Allied Nations - Edmund Dulac

1916 - Hodder & Stoughton, London - First Trade Edition
A finely bound first edition of Dulac’s large and beautifully illustrated ‘Fairy-Book’, with thirteen tipped-in colour plates.

‘The tales of this book, both written and illustrated by Dulac, were drawn from the folklore of Russia, England, Flanders, Belgium, Italy, France, Ireland, Serbia and Japan. Dulac was able to employ the full scope of his versatility in creating a national mood in each illustration. During this period of his work, Dulac had immersed himself in the artistic traditions of folklore.

He was partly stimulated by his friendship with Yeats (whose interest in Celtic folklore was legendary) and partly awakened to ethnic themes by his 1913 cruise through the eastern Mediterranean. Also at this time he was influenced by his encounters with the Russian-born designer Léon Bakst and Bakst's stage work for Diaghilev's Ballets Russes’ – Ann Hughey,
