London: Hodder & Stoughton, no date . [Children's Illustrated] FIRST DULAC ILLUSTRATED EDITION, trade issue. Quarto (29 x 23cm), pp. 222 . With 23 stunning colour plates by Dulac, including a frontispiece, each mounted with captioned tissue guards. Publisher's brown cloth, extensively decorated in green and gilt to spine and upper, including gilt titles in faux-Arabic script. Brown endpapers with blue floral design. Faint traces of an ink ownership to half-title. Toning to edges, with some light spotting to first and final leaves. Gentle repairs to rear hinge, and some minor insect or damp damage to lower corner of rear fly-leaf. Light rubbing to boards, with some professional repairs to joints, head, and tail of spine. Very good. Dulac's colour plate illustrations capture perfectly the exotic narratives of the folk hero known as Sinbad the Sailor. Each page is beautifully ornamented with floral and geometric panelling. Truly a delightful and absorbing work. Item #58904
