Description

This collection of 'Hans Christian Andersen Stories' contains eleven of Hans Christian's most well-loved tales, and is illustrated by the charming plates and black and white line drawings of Anne Anderson. The stories include: 'The Drop of Water'; 'The Tinder Box'; 'The Ugly Duckling'; 'The Little Match-Girl'; 'The Garden of Paradise'; 'Little Tuk'; 'The Little Mermaid'; 'The Nightingale'; 'The Marsh King's Daughter'; 'Mother Elder'; and 'The Daisy'.

Hans Christian Andersen (1805 - 1875) was a Danish poet and author celebrated for his children's stories but perhaps best known for his fables and fairy tales - meant for both adults and children. They were frequently written in a colloquial style, using idioms and spoke language in a manner previously unseen in Danish literature. Though simple at first glance, Hans Christian Andersen stories often convey sophisticated moral teachings, in equal measure heart-breaking and heart-warming.

Anne Anderson (1874 - 1930) was a prolific Scottish illustrator, primarily known for her art nouveaux children's book illustrations. She also painted, etched and designed many greetings cards, with her illustrations appearing near the end of the Edwardian era. Presented alongside the text, her illustrations further refine and elucidate Andersen's masterful storytelling.

Pook Press celebrates the great 'Golden Age of Illustration' in children's classics and fairy tales - a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration. We publish rare and vintage Golden Age illustrated books, in high-quality colour editions, so that the masterful artwork and story-telling can continue to delight both young and old.
