Notes

First Weguelin edition, number 63 of 150 large paper copies. John Reinhard Weguelin (1849-1927) was an English painter and illustrator, who drew on folklore for inspiration, and painted numerous images of nymphs and mermaids. A review in the newspaper The Sketch noted that "as for Mr. J. R. Weguelin's illustrations, it would scarcely be possible to overpraise them, the pencil can do no more for Andersen than Mr. Weguelin has done for him here".

Provenance: from the library of English guitarist and rare book dealer Martin Stone (1946-2016), with his handwriting to front free endpaper.
