[Folkard, Charles- Original Art for Grimm's Fairy Tales] Six Original Pen and Ink Drawings for Grimm's Fairy Tales, A & C Black, 1911

1911.

Offered here are six original pen and drawings by CHARLES FOLKARD, noted British book illustrator remembered for his endearing illustrations in a number of children's books in the early 1900's. Te drawings are from the popular book, "Grimm's Fairy Tales, With and Introduction by Charles Ruskin," published in London by Adam & Charles Black, in 1911. Four are mounted on artboard, and two on paper. There are three large drawings (about 12 x 8 inches), and three smaller (about 5 x 10 inches, i.e. oblong). Most notably, the title-page, contents page, and illustration page all appear in the larger format with copious line drawings, lettering and framing design elements. With pencil notations including: "From Chas. J. Folkard, Nottingham, Kent/ for Folkard's Edition of Grimm's Fairy Tales," appearing on the verso of every drawing, (with Court Farm Lane added in some). All in very good condition with usual wear attending art that has traveled to and from publishers. A scarce grouping.
