Language: English
Note: Andrew Lang's story "The Princess Nobody" is illustrated by a selection from the entire set, according to this review of its 1st ed. (quote): Mr. Andrew Lang has boldly essayed to write a fairy tale "after the drawings by Richard Doyle". Of course the drawings have been published before--and more of them than are here--in the most precious and beautiful of all fairy books. [...] long out of print [...] Mr. Lang is properly diffident as to his capacity to write anything worthy [...] But there is probably no living man of letters better qualified to seize and reproduce the spirit of the old fairy tales than Mr. Lang; and, despite an irreverent modern touch here and there, he has done a difficult thing very gracefully and well. To the knowing ones this little book will perhaps be the book of the Christmas season. --The Manchester Guardian 1884-11-19 p7 "Christmas Books: III", lead item Some notes on the Lang story, The Princess Nobody, pertain also to the selected Doyle illustrations
