Paperback. The edition of the Brothers Grimm’s The Twelve Dancing Princesses, beautifully designed and illustrated by Sheila Robinson in the late 1940s, has never been published before, the original having lived in the Fry Art Gallery in Saffron Walden for a number of years since being donated by Robinson’s daughter, the artist Chloe Cheese. The original book is in the form of a single completed, hand-made, hand-bound edition, created to the exact format of the Picture Puffin series, alternating between colour and black and white spreads. This first published edition incorporates a wraparound dust jacket showing examples of the preparatory drawings Robinson produced for the book, along with a short essay by Professor Martin Salisbury and afterword from Chloe Cheese. Condition: near fine.
