Description

The Bird Talisman, An Eastern Tale by Henry Allan Wedgwood. Illustrated by Gwen Raverat. Wedgwood Pottery Family interest and Darwin Family Connections to this lovely story about an Indian princess and her magic ring which made her able to talk to the birds.

The story was written by Harry Wedgwood grandson of Josiah Wedgwood of Etruria and first printed as a story in the Family Tutor in 1852.

This Indian Fairytale was so beloved by the children of the Wedgwood and Darwin families that Mrs Darwin had it privately printed for the next generation in a small hardback book. The book is illustrated by Gwen Raverat the Great Niece of the author who has exquisitely illustrated it with woodblock style pen and ink illustrations.

It is a lovely work of fantasy the tale for many years had just lived in the private treasures of the Wedgwood and Darwin families until being published again.

This is the Second Edition 1964 hardback with Dust wrapper.

Please see my Etsy Store http://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/KittysTales for more delightful Vintage Children's Books and more Vintage and Rare Collectable Books.

Size approximately: 8.5" inches by 6" inches.

*Condition*

This is Fresh from the Attic in Good Vintage Collectable Condition. Lovely Clean cloth binding and decorative spine.

Text block is tight. Pages are clean inside slightly yellowed to a nice parchment colour. Dust Jacket is a bit rubbed and faded with some age marks some light freckling to the top edge of the text block and some dust staining but otherwise very good. Previous owners name written in Ink and dated 1969 could easily be covered by a bookplate or small name sticker.

Lovely Reading Copy.

If overseas please remember I will do my best but books are heavy.

Any questions just ask!

I was thrilled to receive and read this exquisitely wrapped, beautiful edition of a literary tour-de-force, which is in very good condition.

Kitty's service was exceptional. She is to be commended for her work in cultivating continued interest in, and preserving, vintage editions of literary treasures, especially in an age of increased digitisation.
