The Giant Golden Book of Elves and Fairies with Assorted Pixies, Mermaids, Brownies, Witches, and Leprechauns.

New York. Simon and Schuster. 1951. First edition. Illustrated throughout with colour vignettes, decorations, etc by Garth Williams. Tall 4to. Bound in pictorial boards.

Widely regarded as one of the most charming fairy books ever produced, this title remains quite elusive and desireable.

Rather obvious repairs to spine strip particularly at front hinge which has been coloured in with a green filler. Covers and corners somewhat rubbed with portions of original glassine lacking. Previous owners small name and ink to title page. Despite the hinge work this is still a very bright, crisp, serviceable copy.
