KAY NIELSEN SIGNED LIMITED EDITION. 1 OF ONLY 500 COPIES. ORIGINAL DUST-WRAPPER




























KAY NIELSEN.  SIGNED LIMITED EDITION. 1 OF ONLY 500 COPIES. ORIGINAL DUST-WRAPPER

FAIRY TALES OF HANS ANDERSEN. Kay Nielsen.  London Hodder and Stoughton [1924],  The beautiful signed  Limited Edition one of only 500 copies, this is number 458.  Signed by the illustrator, Kay Nielsen. With 12 tipped-in colour plates and numerous black & white illustrations as frontispieces to each tale all by Kay Nielsen. 4to, large format, approx. 12.5” x 10.25”.  Top edge Gilt. The publisher’s original binding with elaborate gilt pictorial designs on the upper cover and spine, complete with the incredibly rare illustrated dust-wrapper.  This collection of sixteen tales was initiated by Nielsen in 1912, though it was not published until 1924. Hodder & Stoughton, in an effort to promote sales after the war, began publishing gift books again with beautiful illustrations and bindings. This is one of their very best and in the scarcest and most desirable, particularly with its original dustjacket.  Covers are a little rubbed, gilt still very bright, spine a little faded lightly rubbed head and tail. Inside is very good and bright, pages nicely age toned, a couple of grubby marks a couple of tiny page nicks no inscriptions, hinges strong, (remarkable for such a heavy book).  The incredibly rare original dust-wrapper has some chips /tears, some small loss.  Nielsen is regarded along with Arthur Rackham and Edmund Dulac as one of the triumvirate of masters of the illustrated gift book. This is no small achievement considering he only produced four such books in comparison to the dozens of titles produced by the other two gentlemen. Had he more time to enlarge his reputation he may well be considered the greatest master of the genre today. Although frequently compared to Rackham and Dulac his style is very different and altogether unique.  Danish born and Parisian trained he was far more influenced by the Art Nouveau. His greatest influences as a student were the Japanese woodcuts of Hokusai and Utamaro and the black and white decorative line work of Aubrey Beardsley. Nielsen was among the most highly regarded illustrators of his day but produced only five books in total. He was lured away from the profession by Walt Disney, for whom he became an animator. These five books are more than enough however to secure his reputation for generations to come. Of the lasting appeal of Hans Andersen’s ‘Tales’ nothing more needs to be said.
