Lemon, Mark; Charles H. Bennett & Richard Doyle, illus. Fairy tales. London: Bradbury, Evans, & Co., 1868. 8vo (19.9 cm, 7.83"). , 189,  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.
