14 The Complete Tales - of Hans Christian Andersen [2 Volumes in Slipcase]
Andersen, Hans Christian ; with an introduction by Brian Alderson and translated by Jean Hersholt The Folio Society 2006 Hardcover Fine Slipcase Fine Book 4to - over 9 - 12" tall 
I am not sure if these are the first Folio Society edition of 2005 or the reprint of 2006 as they are still shrinkwrapped and I have left them so, to demonstrate how new and untouched they are. This Folio Society edition was the first complete edition of Hans Andersen's tales to be published and contains 156 tales in all. There are illustrations by renowned artists including Arthur Rackham, Heath Robinson, Edmund Dulac and Quentin Blake, amongst many others. A very HEAVY set - a significant postage surcharge will apply to international orders as this book costs more to send than our standard postage rate will allow. NO extra charges for delivery within the UK. Discount available for collection from our shop premises in North Oxfordshire. 102311 
Price: 100.00 GBP
