Format: Hardcover
This is a large, luxurious book, beautiful heavy paper of a soft ivory hue used throughout. It has a quality cloth cover with gilt lettering, no dust jacket. This is an unabridged reproduction of the deluxe illustrated gift edition published by Hodder & Stoughton 1911 and is reprinted in its original large format with all 28 color plates and other decorative elements. Each page has an inset double border and two bars of elaborate floral motifs top and bottom. There are blank pages throughout with an embellished peacock feather motif. THe colour plates are large, glossy and rich with much detail, the ink sits thickly on the paper creating the effect of looking like paintings on the page. I have one small comment about modern reproductions of Dulac's early colour plates, they all look as though they have been scanned and then reprinted - I'm sure they probably have been as the original plates for these works must be long gone or perished so digital scanning is likely the only way to reproduce these works. However the problem with scanning, especially with works that were originally watercolours on watercolour paper is that the subtle nuances and shades of watercolours are difficult for a scanner to detect and reproduce accurately and secondly the heavy texture of watercolour paper is picked up and reproduced by the scanner as part of the image. The result is the images look slightly blurred and softened compared to the originals and a colour that in the originals is made up of many shades often reads as one solid colour, so the pictures are sometimes a bit monotone. But of all the recent (past 30 years) reproductions of Dulac's work that I have seen these are the best.Many of the reproductions from the 80's-90's are so dire I wouldn't waste your money buying them.Read more ›

The previous reviewer gave such a delicious account of their copy of this book, I couldn't wait for mine to be delivered. It is a beautiful book, but I wish the paper had been slightly thinner and of better quality. As it is, it's the thickness of card and because of this, the book doesn't sit nicely flat when opened. It would also have been nice to have seen some more of his work in one volume, although I realise this is a replication of the 1911 edition and the publishers have tried to remain sympathetic to the original.

The only thing better than owning THIS edition would be to have a first edition Dulac-illustrated copy. This is as near as I can get and I'm thrilled. Is there anything better than heading back to childhood with beautiful memories and images to accompany them. Heaven!

It was a must have as we already have all the classics in another language. This one has better illustrations though.
