First abridged edition of this stunning publication illustrated by Dulac, rare in the box which has a color plate on the cover.
STORIES FROM THE ARABIAN NIGHTS
Dulac was only 25 years old when he was given the opportunity to illustrated an edition of the ARABIAN NIGHTS for the gift market in 1907. It was Dulac's first collaboration with Hodder & Stoughton; the book's robust sales led to a long partnership with the publisher to create an annual illustrated versions of classic titles for the holiday season – as well as further gift editions of his hits like this one. Thus this project can be said to have launched Dulac's career as one of the most respected artists of the Golden Age of Illustration. A great gift edition.
