Children's Classic "Forty Famous Fairy Tales"  Antique illustrated hardcover cloth cover Grimm, Anderson, Jacobs
Published by G.P. Putnam and Sons in 1923.
Octavo in blue cloth wrapped boards, pictorial paste down on cover, several black and white illustrations on glossy paper, decorated end papers, 392 pages.
A "good plus" vintage book with solid binding and gutters, no loose or torn or folded pages. The back hinge is split a couple inches at the top, but overall the binding is tight. The text block closes tightly and squarely. Board corners and spine head and heel are bumped, with the lower corners worn through. The pictorial paste down on the front cover has some surface scuffs. Top edge of the text block is dusted, tanned all around, a few spots. an X-mas inscription inside front free end paper (see accompanying images).
Not perfect, but still very quaint, with many of the best-loved classics (see images for table of contents).
