GAG, Wanda. Three Gay Tales from Grimm. Freely Translated and Illustrated by Wanda Gag. NY: Coward-McCann [1943]. 12mo, 63pp. Full-color pictorial boards. B&w illustrations throughout. A bright, clean copy, with rubbing and bumping to spine ends and edges of boards, bearing previous owner's inscription on front free endpapers and previous bookseller sticker on front fixed endpapers, in publisher's original full-color pictorial dust jacket (not price-clipped, chipped and creased around panel edges and spine ends, rear panel slightly scratched).

First Edition. Bound by a common thread—a serene foolishness cropping up in many a character and absurd situation—the three charming tales in this beautiful book are not as well-known as they deserve to be. Wanda Gág’s interpretations of “The Clever Wife” and “The Three Feathers” are exceptionally funny, while “Goose Hans” is particularly hard to find in Grimm collections. Gág’s uniquely American translations and her equally enchanting illustrations will provide sheer delight for the young and old.
