By Maud Margaret Key Stawell, "Mrs. Stawell", illustrated by Edmund Dulac
First edition of this collection of fairy stories illustrated by Dulac, with an incredible fantasy binding by William Henry Romaine Walker.
FAIRIES I HAVE MET
Often reprinted due to the popular illustrations by Dulac, this true first edition is remarkable for the design of the pictorial binding by William Henry Romaine Walker, which was changed in later editions. (Dulac's illustrations were also later used in an enlarged edition titled MY DAYS WITH THE FAIRIES.)

Illustrated by Dulac with 8 color plates. 117,  pages. Light bumping to spine ends and corners, cream color on spine slightly toned: interior fresh, hinges tight.
