A Very Good copy with light to moderate scratches on cover onlay and titles on spine faded but still legible. Still a bright and fresh copy. A series of 10 Arabian Nights stories that were, as Kate Douglas Wiggin states in her preface, “shortened here and there, omitting some…repetitions that crept in from time to time…”. This is a book that will delight children of all ages, for as Ms. Wiggin so deftly put it, “Nowhere in the whole realm of literature will you find such a Marvel, such a Wonder…of a book.” Parrish's unforgettable illustrations deftly place the wonder of these tales into the realm of legend. Ludwig pp. 205 Maxfield Parrish (1870 - 1966) was a student of Howard Pyle at the Drexel Institute of Art and a member of the Brandywine School of American illustration. He preferred the use of luminous colors for his illustrations -- the colors of twilight, and was much influenced by the color pallete of the Southwest. He was a prolific illustrator of books, magazines and ephemera such as calendars and posters. In his later years he gave up illustration and concentrated solely on his painting.
