Here is a nice antique book of Grimm's Fairy Tales illustrated by M Schaefer for your buying consideration. Would make a great gift for a special occasion, or keep for yourself!
The book was printed in the German. Book dates to the late 1800s to around 1910. Great color illustrations throughout the book done by an M Schaefer. Book is titled, "Grimms Marchen" on the spine in black lettering.
This book is in pretty good shape for being around 100 years old. Would rate it as in fair to low good condition. The hardboard covers are still attached to rest of book. Book is loose though at spine. All pages and illustrations appear to be there. One of the first colored illustrations is loose from binding, still with book. The pages show some browning from age. Spine cover loose from rest of book, still all there.
The book is loosely bound together. Many of the pages are loose at the spine, still there. The front and rear hard covers are done in red. Great illustration of what appears to be the Rapunzel fairy tale on the front cover.
There is no musty or mildewy smell to the book. The cover over the spine is still there. Worn and tearing along cover seam. An abundant amount of colored illustrations in this book that are noted in a listing on one of the front pages. No printing on the back of the illustration to mess the illustration up on the front. The book is 9" tall, by 6-3/8" across, by .75" wide. The book is 195 pages in length.
