  1. from ‘The Emperor's New Clothes’ 


Few writers can claim to have contributed to the world's store of folklore, but Hans Christian Andersen, the shy and reclusive Danish writer, was one of them.

Inspired by the great tradition of The Arabian Nights and the Brothers Grimm, his magical stories continue to delight, enchant and occasionally terrify.

This facsimile of the 1913 edition contains 17 of his most famous tales, including ‘The Emperor's New Clothes’, ‘The Little Mermaid’, ‘The Snow Queen’ and ‘The Ugly Duckling’. The original illustrations by William Heath Robinson capture all the magic of the text making this the perfect way to enjoy this master storyteller.
