Original blue cloth, highly decorated in black and yellow, on boards. No DJ. See SCAN. This is the l942 edition of the 1928 one, which was a larger format and contained 8 plates, rather than the four in this edition. Sad to say, the wartime binding has not withstood wear, and the colour plate of Little Bo-Peep is torn its full width(Left as is). Racial and religious slurs are present, as well as various violent scenes of shooting, beating, and cutting. Still, for the student of folklore, a valuable reference embellished by hundreds of small drawings and the four full-page colour plates. A few edge chips or tears. 205 pp plus valuable index of first lines.
