Lemon, Mark; Charles H. Bennett & Richard Doyle, illus.  Fairy tales. London: Bradbury, Evans, & Co., 1868. 8vo (19.9 cm, 7.83"). [12], 189, [3] pp.; 6 plts., illus.
$300.00

First edition, combining these two fairy tales with art from two popular illustrators of the day: "The Chronicles of the Three Sisters" and "The Enchanted Doll," with numerous contributions by Charles H. Bennett and Richard Doyle. The first story features four full-page designs, decorative capitals, and in-text vignettes by Bennett, known for his "Shadows" series and his artwork for Aesop's fables; and the latter (a tale written for and originally dedicated to Charles Dickens' two oldest daughters) two full-page designs along with assorted capitals and vignettes by Doyle, a popular comic and fairytale artist.
        The three contributors here — Lemon, Doyle, and Bennett — worked together at Punch; this appears to be the only book-form work on which all three collaborated.

NSTC 2L11171. Publisher's green cloth, front cover and spine pictorially stamped in silver and black; binding lightly worn overall (most noticeably at extremities) with very minor bubbling to cloth. Title-page and a few others with small spots of foxing, pages otherwise clean. => An attractive copy of a desirable work.  (40983)   Please RESHELVE This.
