THE UGLY DUCKLING. Pictured in Colours by T. Van Hoytema.
London: David Nutt, 1894. Title, plus 31 pages (butterfly style) of colour lithographed illustrations in the Dutch Art Nouveau style. Original pictorial paper-covered boards. Quarto. First and only English edition. Probably an early edition as the last page has the English title laid down over the Dutch. Re-backed and re-cased, but a very good copy of a very scarce title. This copy bears the bookplate of the noted collector of Andersen''s work, Dr. Richard Klein. The first Dutch edition was published in 1893. The book is considered to be Hoytema's finest work.
