The Blue Fairy Book (Barnes & Noble Collectible Editions) by Andrew Lang, H. J. Ford, G. P. Jacomb Hood

Originally published in 1889, The Blue Fairy Book was the first of 12 volumes of fairy tales from around the world, collected by renowned folklorist Andrew Lang. For more than a century it has been the book that introduces young readers to timeless fairy tales that include "Hansel and Gretel," "Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp," "Beauty and the Beast," "The Master Cat; or, Puss in Boots," "The Forty Thieves," and "Snow-White and Rose-Red." This collection of selected fairy tales features the distinguished art of Henry J. Ford and G. P. Jacomb Hood, which graced the book's first edition. The Blue Fairy Book is one of Barnes & Noble's Collectible Editions classics for children. It features classic illustrations, an elegant bonded-leather binding, distinctive gilt edging, and a ribbon bookmark. Decorative, durable, and collectible, these books offer hours of pleasure to readers young and old and are an indispensable cornerstone for any home library.

I almost didn't buy The Blue Fairy Book because of the reviews that stated there aren't any pictures in it.  There are pictures in the copy I received.  It's the Leatherbound edition.

I love this book :) I really hope they plan on coming out with the red fairy book soon! I want the whole collection!

Printing on the spine is off center and embarrassing. After discovering a bad misprint in "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" in this collection, I'm starting to be wary.

Warning! While this book is gorgeous on the outside, it is missing 8 stories: Little Red Riding Hood Sleeping Beauty Rumpelstiltskin The Goose Girl The Brave Little Tailor A Voyage to Lilliput Trusty John Little Thumb This was unacceptable to me since there are other versions that include them all. I purchased mine on Amazon and not suspecting Barnes and Noble would have released such a book, opened it to find out too late the stories were missing.
