First edition, first issue. 4to. Original red cloth, lettered in gilt and with a gilt vignette the upper cover. Thirty-two beautiful colour plates are in rich colours and are all protected by captioned tissue guards. Includes some fairy images. A near fine copy.

The fairy tales in this volume were collected and published by Neapolitan, Giambattista Basile in the 17th century.

Strongly influenced by Oriental art, Goble's illustrations are extremely subtle and very charming.
