First edition. Millicent Sowerby, who illustrated editions of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, A Child’s Garden of Verses, and Grimm’s Fairy Tales, created her most beautiful and luxurious book in this fantastic edition of Cinderella. Capturing the feel of 17th century France romanticism, her lush paintings combined with luxurious gold decorations make this a truly stunning work.
