Beschreibung

First Edition. This copy is inscribed by Mr.Morley on the half title. Bound in publisher's embossed purple cloth faded to spine, titled and decorated in gilt to spine and front board. Light bumping and wear to extremities, fraying to head of spine and a small hole in the cloth midway down the spine panel. Pencil ownership to front flyleaf. Essentially a strong, solid copy of a charming little book of Victorian fairy tales, many of which lean strongly towards the surreal; including a particularly mental example where great attention is paid to decoding the message written on the back of a very talkative mackerel. Morley seems to have been responsible for dispensing potted education to every literate occupant of Victorian England. He was responsible for Morley's Universal Library, Cassell's National Library, and was the long time editor of Charles Dickens' Household Words to boot. He is said to have edited and written over three hundred volumes during the course of his distinguished career. We can only suppose that he knocked off this little collection of Carroll-esque bits and pieces in the quiet part of an afternoon when he wasn't learning the violin and translating Tacitus.
