The White Elephant and Other Tales from India by Volland 1929

The "white Elephant and other tales from India" Book dated 1929 Stories retold by Georgene Faulkner and originally broadcast by the "Radio Lady", or sometimes called the "story Lady". Her introduction gives children further books to explore and introduces them to comparative folklore. The illustrations by Frederick Richardson are beautiful: full color plates inspired by Mughal painting, each facing a decorated caption, and others are in black and white. Since all Volland paper was "plate" quality, the color and black and white could be printed on either side of the sheet.

The stories are: The White Elephant, The Grain of Corn, The Timid Little Rabbit, Singh Raja and the Cunning Little Jackals, The Kingdom of Mouseland, The Alligator and the Jackal, The Bold Blackbird, The Kid and the Tiger, The Brahmin and the Tiger, The Bear's Bad Bargain, The Man Who Rode a Tiger. There is a caption hand written on one of the inside pages from the giver of this book to the child recipient and that is dated 1937. The spin is tight and the front and the back covers are in nice condition as you can see from the photos. There are a few small tears in the book and a subtle water mark. All in all it is in very good shape for its age and will no doubt be a treasure to the person who owns it next. Shipping will include tracking. The book is 9" x 6". Thank you for visiting my shop Sorry, I no longer ship to Italy.
