Lot 5016: Vintage & Antique FAIRY & FOLK TALES Other Children's Classics Stories (132 views)

Vintage & Antique FAIRY & FOLK TALES Other Children's Classics Stories
Estimate: $70 - $200
Book Details: This generous group of vintage and antique children's books is rich with treasures, particularly in the number of volumes of fairy tales, myths, and folklore, many of which are centered in northern Europe. In addition to fairy tales from Hans Christian Andersen and Andrew Lang ("The Orange Fairy Book"), other books cover the stories found in Wagner's operas, other Norse and German legends, and tales from France, Japan, China, Belgium, Russia, and Holland.

Among the many other charming volumes is an antique picture book with vocabulary captions in both English and German; classic fiction such as "Tom Brown's School Days," Dr. Dolittle, and a Father Tuck's Annual. "A Child's Garden of Verses" is well-represented. Also present is a story by Kenneth Grahame with pictures by Ernest Shepherd (better known as the author of "The Wind in the Willows" and the illustrator of the Winnie-the-Pooh books); and a Boy Scout Handbook from 1938.
