A book of ‘Great Fairy Stories’ from Andersen, Grimm and The Arabian Knights.
This vintage and undated book is packed with wonderful old stories from the past. It was published by Daily Sketch Publications, London c. 1940 and has black and white illustrations.
With favourite stories such as: The Emperor’s New Clothes, The Ugly Duckling, Rumpel-Stilts-Ken, Hansel and Grethel, Aladdin and Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, the stories have a slightly scarier storyline than those of today.
The book is in good/fair condition. It has no dust jacket; the blue cover is faded and the corners are worn. The first page appears to be missing, but the rest of the pages are complete with no issues. There is slight foxing to the first pages and the edges.
The book measures approx. 19cm x 13cm x 3cm.
A classic book of fairy tales.
