Description

The Happy Prince and Other Stories by Oscar Wilde lovely Vintage Puffin Paperback from the 1970s.

This super vintage Children's Book contains the favourite stories written by Oscar Wilde, The Happy Prince, The Selfish Giant, The Nightingale and the Rose, The Young King, The Birthday of the Infanta, The Star Child and the Fisherman and his soul.

Oscar Wilde made up these very special Fairy Stories for his own children. The stories may seem on the surface to be stories about Princes, Giants, Nightingales and Roses but actually they are very deep and meaningful and meant to teach his children how to be good and caring to others.

They are tender and full of sweetness, some are very sad but they are all beautiful. Brilliant and haunting as to be expected from Oscar Wilde they are classics you and your children will remember all your life.

The book recommends that they can be read aloud to children of six or older but the stories are so beautiful you may just want a copy of this book of Oscar Wilde's Fairy Stories for your own book collection!

The book has pretty line drawings by Danish Artist and Illustrator of Children's books Lars Bo that were specially commissioned for this Puffin Edition.

Like Vintage Penguin books many of these Young Puffin Books and Fontana Lions along with other 1960's and 1970's paperbacks are gaining a cult following.

*Condition*

This is fresh from the attic in used but good vintage condition. Text block is tight and spine good. The Title is fully intact. A few little creases and small marks to the cover but cover and pages are still firm. Typically of all paperbacks of this era the pages are tanned and like all vintage paperbacks the book is a little fragile but this kind of adds to the charm!

No Name Inscription or damage of any kind.

Nice Reading copy. Classic Bedtime Stories.

Please Contact me if you want multiple items and I will calculate the cheapest shipping cost possible for you.

UK buyers up to 2kg of books can be shipped for £4.78

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

Any questions just ask!
