The Joyce Mercer Edition of Andersen and Grimm

MERCER, Joyce

ART DECO FAIRY TALE BOOK

MERCER, Joyce The Joyce Mercer Edition of Andersen and Grimm

Hutchinson, 1935.

First editio illustrated by Mercer. 4to. Grey cloth with Art Deco style designs in navy and red. Top edge red. Inscribed by Mercer to the front endpaper, "Joyce Mercer, September 1935, with love to Auntie." Pictorial endpapers, sixteen colour plates and over 250 black and white drawings by Joyce Mercer. A very good copy, slight nick to cloth at upper joint.

A good anthology of fairy tales with favourites from Hans Christian Andersen, including The Little Mermaid, The Steadfast Tin Soldier and The Emperor's New Clothes; and the Brothers Grimm, Hansel and Grethel, Rumpelstiltskin and Snow Drop, as well as many others. Mercer's Art Deco style drawings are unusual for a children's book, the colour plates having a vibrancy and depth reminiscent of the work of Harry Clarke and the black and white drawings are almost Beardsley-esque.
