dc.description.abstractHere is an extra copy of the first edition, though not signed by the author, as the copy in the collection is. A delightful introduction engagingly brings the reader to the points in Morley's life at which he met each of these two fairy tales. Morley seems to use that expression interchangeably with fables. De Musset's Histoire d'un Merle Blanc (1-55) is a delightful satiric autobiography of a white blackbird. It touches humanly on questions of identity, art, fame, and love. Hauff's short story The Young Foreigner (59-95) is fun. One dare not say much; take Morley's own word that he spent an evening in a German inn laughing outrageously over it. The book's pages are bordered in engaging fashion. The design for de Musset includes quills and a candle, black and white birds, leaves and flowers. That for Hauff includes the sun and feathers, a stein and pipes, and a vine and grapes. Each story begins with a full-page engraving. In summer of '97, Kelmscott is offering a dust-jacketed first edition for $65.en_US
