New York: The Macmillan Company, 1925.
First Edition. Hardcover. A 1925 book of plays fit for the finest players in any faraway kingdom, Goldtree and Silvertree winds and unwinds the strands of folk-tales, bringing together accusations of witchcraft, fairy stars, talking cats, a boy named Jack and a golden goose, princesses of unsurpassed beauty, wicked stepmothers, magic mirrors, fairy godmothers, poisoned thimbles, and wise fools. Each tale is charmingly and at times quite dramatically illustrated in striking black and white by Winifred Bromhall, with songs set to musical interludes by Marion E. LeBron. A lovely little collection that is sure to have you reading aloud (and doing voices for each character, of course), if not staging a full fairy-tale production.
7 5/8" X 5 1/2". vii, 159pp. Tan cloth over board, with curtained stage scene featuring a bowing prince and princess with a castle stamped in gilt, black, and white to upper board, with upper board lettered in gilt and spine in black. Mild wear to binding, with spots of rubbing, edgewear, and small splits to bumped corners. Binding is firm and sound. Pages are clean and unmarked. Thoroughly illustrated in charming and at times quite dramatic monochrome drawings by Winifred Bromhall. Very good. Item #5758
