London: George Routledge and Sons, No date [circa 1879]. Ten volumes. each with a coloured frontispiece and line drawings within the text; each bound in a decorative coloured cloth, gilt. Octavos. Contained in a cloth box with a pictorial gilt decoration to the lid, and a paper label, detailing the contents, to the underside of the lid. Some volumes with signatures that are loosening; joints strained; box restored, with one plain side and the lip replaced; else very good. Extremely scarce, and rarely found in the original box. The Hans Andersen series of fairy tales, issued by Routledge at the same time, is far easier to obtain .
