One of the most popular, lovely, and sought-after Golden Books ever published, The Fairy Tale Book features a wealth of folk stories from a variety of countries (France, Germany, Denmark, Russia, and Japan) and authors (Hans Christian Andersen, The Brothers Grimm, Madame d'Aulnoy, Charles Perrault, and others), all translated by Marie Ponsot and beautifully illustrated in color and black and white by Adrienne Ségur. This hard-to-find first edition (A395A395 inside the front cover) is in VG+ condition with some loss to the cover glaze, a small nick to the upper spine, and one page with the darkened evidence of an old acidic tape repair (now with an acid-free repair), but everything else intact and Fine.
