A most beautiful and very rare book, this is the sought-after First Signed Limited Edition of East of the Sun and West of The Moon, by Kay Nielsen. Often said to be the most important work of the Golden Age period of book illustration. One of 500 copies only. A must have for the collector. 

Book:  EAST OF THE SUN AND WEST OF THE MOON: OLD TALES FROM THE NORTH. ILLUSTRATED BY KAY NIELSEN. HODDER AND STOUGHTON, no date but 1914. First Signed Limited Edition - signed by Kay Nielsen. Later vellum with new silk ties, new slipcase. Pictorial end papers with designs after drawings by Kay Nielsen in black and gold. Top Edge Gilt ( TEG), other edges deckled or rough-cut. Superbly and profusely illustrated by Kay Nielsen with 25 beautiful plates tipped-in on blue-and-gold edged cardstock mounts, each under a captioned tissue guard. The text is printed on high quality thick paper. Extensively decorated and illustrated also with numerous black and white designs, drawings and vignettes - almost every page has a drawing or a decoration. Book condition: Externally a FINE, bright copy. Slight yellowing to vellum. Internally, occasional scatterings of small dusty spotting at top edge, a few small occasional spots near edges as is typical to books of this age with exposed uneven deckled edges, two pages with what appears to be a short closed tear about 1cm or perhaps a slight paper fault at lower edge ( close up photos below), slight rippling to tissues at upper edge, the tissues are otherwise flat and without wrinkles or creases, all of the superb lithograph plates are in perfect condition.  The above is stated for the sake of accuracy, overall a bright copy of a very famous and much-loved book, in very good condition . Bookplate of well known UK collector on reverse of first free endpapers. A lovely, gift and collection worthy special book by Kay Nielsen . Please view more than 100 photos - below. Happy reading.

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
