Notes

Signed limited edition, number 31 of 500 copies signed by the illustrator. The present work gathers classic stories by Hans Christian Andersen, including the Snow Queen and the Tinder Box, all of which provide good subject matter for Kay Nielsen, one of the greatest illustrators of his time. Variant cover designs were issued, without known priority. This is the vellum issue, with an unstated part of the edition issued in a cloth binding.
