First edition, first impression. “[Dulac’s] status as a popular artist was assured when he was commissioned by Hodder and Stoughton to illustrate a new edition of The Arabian Nights (1907)” (ODNB). It has also been noted that “Edmund Dulac became Rackham’s rival in the gift-book field after the publication of… Arabian Nights… in which the mystery of the East was well evoked by the artist’s current passion for deep blues and purples” (Whalley & Chester, A History of Children’s Book Illustration, 1988, p. 152).

Quarto (249 x 177 mm). 20th century dark blue full morocco, decorative gilt spine, sides decorated with gilt stars and Moorish motifs. With original cloth covers, spine and front endpapers bound-in. Title page printed in orange and black, 50 tipped-in colour plates on grey card with captioned tissue guards. A handsomely bound copy.
