An interesting and charming collection of 14 different illustrated editions of Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tales in English translation. Containing translations by several of the most famous Andersen-translators as well as many of the most famous and well-known illustrations. The variety in the original bindings, most of which are decorated, and the many different illustrations contained in this collected set presents us with an excellent opportunity of discovering the development of the understanding and effect of the reading of Andersen's classic fairy tales from the late 19th century through the first decades of the 20th century, after which the English Andersen-translations changed drastically in character.
