"What the Moon Saw: and Other Tales" by Hans Christian Andersen [George Routledge, 1866]. First edition in English, first printing. With 80 illustrations by A.W. Bayes. Pebbled brick cloth with gilt titling and decorations. Including such hilarious tales as "The Child in the Grave" where a 4-year old dies in the second sentence. 372pp + 4 ads. Two gift inscriptions from the Moon family, one from 1866 and one from 1990 when this book appears to finally have left that aptly-named family. Front hinge is barely starting to pull away, binding is somewhat cocked, and spine titling faded. No loose pages, text is clean with no writing/foxing etc. Overall, Good+ bordering on Very Good-. Uncommon.
