1st edition dark blue blindstamped hardcover with dull gilt on slightly cocked front board, light soil and rubbing on tips, head & foot of spine. 128 pages show some rippling from past moisture, no musty smell. An enchanting version of seven tales from Hans Christian Andersen, which in the hands of a gifted translator and an inspired artist take on new dimensions. Four of the stories are familiar to every child: The Ugly Duckling, The Fir Tree, The Steadfast Tin Soldier and The Princess and the Pea. The Sendak exquisite sketches, full pages in tones that might have come from a medieval manuscript, seem original and yet exactly right.
