The Red Fairy Book: SOLD

"The Red Fairy Book" published by W.B. Conkey, 1906. Includes stories such as 'The Little Mermaid,' 'Little Snow-White,' 'Thumbelina' and more.

Significant wear to edges, as you can see from the photos. Front cover past-on illustration is still intact and bright, as is the rear illustration. Pages are lightly browned, binding is a bit weak but all pages are secure. Main issue is in the rear - as the above picture shows, there's a small portion of the illustrated endpaper missing, and the rear hinge has been "repaired" with tape.
