Hardback, publisher’s green quarter-cloth over tan paper-covered boards, pictorial onlay plus brown lettering and border to upper board, dark-green/black lettering to spine, 4 colour plates (on coated paper), 4 full-page line drawings (blank to reverse), title page printed in brown and black, with brown vignette, 111 pages. Approximate size 9.8 x 7.5 inches (24.9 x 19 cm). Printed by Turnbull & Spears, Edinburgh.The illustrations in this rare book of fairy tales are by the English artist Florence Mary Anderson (1874-1930).In common with illustrators such as Ida Rentoul Outhwaite and Margaret Tarrant, Florence Anderson’s most sought-after work is in the fairy genre, and her best books (including The Password to Fairyland, The Dream-Pedlar, The Travelling Companions and The Black Princess, among others) date from the decade and a half following the start of the First World War. She was strongly influenced by artists such as Arthur Rackham, Edmund Dulac, Charles Robinson, Kay Nielsen, Maxfield Parrish and Jessie M. King, some of these influences being visible in Adventures in Magic Land.Published by Harrap in 1917, during World War One, Adventures in Magic Land is one of Florence Anderson’s scarcest titles. A second volume of similar stories was published in 1919, also with four colour and four b/w plates. All the stories and line drawings from these two volumes – but only one of the eight colour plates – were brought together by Coker, in their much inferior reissue of the 1930s.I can locate no other copy of the original Harrap edition currently for sale online.Contents include:
Adventures in Magic Land, Little Lobby Tab, The Magic Christmas Ship, A Most Surprising Party, The Magic Beads, The Wonderful Star, The Blue Sweets, and The Magic Gloves (in three Adventures).Condition
Book well used, but complete and intact. Pale finger-marking intermittently throughout, one nick, two short closed tears, two spreads with separation between gatherings, bumping to first and last few tips, bumping/creasing to upper corners throughout, foxing up to page 34 (often heavy), light occasional foxing elsewhere, around 25 pages with staining, half-title page with trace of original ink inscription (partly abraded away), one spread with offsetting/ghosting to foot (from paper or other item previously laid in), traces of a few short pencil lines (mostly erased). Plates re-glued where starting to come loose; margins with finger-marking and soiling, frontispiece a little creased. Endpapers as shown, including staining and light foxing; front free endpaper with remains of old label, head and foot of front hinge with two nicks; rear free endpaper with sharp corner crease (similar crease also to last leaf). Edges of page block with foxing, top with darkening. Binding loose. Boards and spine with staining and wear as shown; paper worn though to corners and edges, with small glue repairs.
