Buchbeschreibung London Hodder & Stoughton n.d. (1924), 1924. First edition. With 12 beautiful mounted colour plates by Edward J. Detmold with the original tissue guards with captions. Large 4to, publisher’s original white buckram decorated with elaborate all-over gilt pictorial designs and lettering on the upper cover and the spine, in the rare publisher's box printed on the upper cover in gray/green and with a pastedown Detmold colourplate. [viii, 240. An extremely fine copy, as near as pristine as could be hoped for, clearly this book has only rarely been outside its original box, the plates fresh and perfect, the gilt on the binding and the white cloth essentially as new, the prelim leaves only with just faint traces of the foxing which commonly plagues this title. The rare box is very attractive, the lid skillfully, unobtusively and sympathetically reinforced with binders cloth, as are the corners of the box. A STUNNING COPY, WE CAN'T REALLY IMAGINE ONE BETTER, THE BOOK VERY SCARCE AND IN THIS CONDITION EXCEPTIONALLY RARE. Detmold's illustrations are rich with color and reflect well the oriental splendor of the tales. THE ARABIAN NIGHTS is one of Detmold's most elusive titles and is one of the finest examples of the artist’s abilities. His 12 colour plates to such well loved stories as ‘Sindbad, ‘Ali Baba’ and ‘Aladddin’ rank among the best of illustrations from a period often considered the golden age of illustrated literature. Despite the effort taken on the part of the publisher to produce these beautiful books they have always been prone to foxing, and the use of white cloth has always been risky. Thus, copies are typically found with considerable mellowing and soiling. This copy we dare say has spent very little time outside of the box which has protected it so well for nearly a century and is truly an exception to the general rule. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 26796
