    First edition thus. Quarto. 24 pages. German text. Twelve color lithograph plates by Hanns Pellar.


    Tan laid paper over boards and tan cloth spine. Titles in black on the front board. Illustration of king on the front board accented in gold. Decorated end papers. Front and back hinges cracked, corners bumped with some toning to the paper on the boards. Small bookseller stamp affixed to the rear pastedown. Otherwise, very good condition.


    Pellar's illustrations are exquisitely rendered and rich, the more so due to his use of gold to highlight each illustration for this wonderful fairy tale.
