- Full Description
This handsome edition features beautifully crafted stories of Theseus and the Minotaur, Circe the Enchantress, Proserpine's abduction into the Underworld, and Jason's quest for the Golden Fleece. The numerous black and white and eleven color illustrations by Sterrett are superb. She illustrated just three major works in her all-too-brief life of just 30 years: "Old French Fairy Tales", "The Arabian Nights", and this title in 1919--her second book. If you like Dulac, Rackham and Kay Nielsen, you cannot miss this.
Calla Editions is an imprint of Dover Books, known for their high quality and excellent low pricing. These outstanding facsimile editions re-capture the look, the feel and the beauty of the original, rare first editions. This is among the most attractive and collected illustrated books from the Golden Age of Illustration, circa 1905-1925.
Handsome grey cloth binding with gold and white embossed titles, a special inlaid full color cover plate, and two-color endpapers. This is one of the less-common of the famous illustrated books from the "Golden Age" and today is rarely found in nice condition. Here is a rare chance to see just what the original edition was all about, and enjoy reading the timeless fantasy stories.
