Signed limited edition, number 149 of 350 copies numbered and signed by the artist. It was this book that first announced Dulac’s status as a popular artist, confirming him as “a direct challenger in the illustrated gift book market to the work of Arthur Rackham. Susan Lambert noted that, compared to Rackham, Dulac ‘made greater use of the breakthrough in four-colour printing, conceiving and modelling his pictures in colour rather than adding colours to a linear design'” (ODNB).

Quarto. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in red morocco, titles and decoration to spine gilt, raised bands, single rule to boards gilt, decorative title block to front board gilt, twin rule to turn-ins gilt, dark green endpapers, top edge gilt. With 50 tipped-in colour plates and captioned tissues. Neat inscription to half-title, some mild foxing mainly to tissues, an excellent copy in a fine binding.
