This beautiful book has six full page color illustrations. They are truly outstanding. There are many black and white illustrations throughout the book. This book includes stories such as: The Wild Swans; The Snow Queen; Big Claus and Little Claus; Everything in Its Right Place; A Great Sorrow; The Little Mermaid and so many more.
This book has a copyright date of 1896 by Koerner & Hayes. It was published in Chicago by Donohue, Henneberry & Co.
The paper covered boards have some chipping along the edges and some scuffing. Overall I would call this very very good condition for a book that is well over 100 years old. There is a beautifully written inscription in the front that says: To Synda from Grandma. What a wonderful antique book.
