Snow White and Rose Red, 1969, 606d


Snow White and Rose Red, 1969.  This book, illustrated by Eric Winter, was the 17th book in the original series of 27 Well-Loved Tales books.  The text, as always in the books of this series, was written by Vera Southgate.

With illustrations by Eric Winter.  This is many people’s favourite book from childhood, although people seem to have been very troubled by the angry dwarf who is the villain of the piece.  Reading the book as an adult, it’s a particularly odd tale – what was that angel all about?  I’ve noticed over the years that fans of the books seem to be either team-Rose Red or team-Snow White – and this choice seems to be dictated by the reader’s hair colour.

This copy:

Snow White and Rose Red, matt boards, Illustrated by Eric Winter.   This is an excellent copy inside and out.  There’s very little wear and with lovely clean, tight pages, although there’s a neat inscription on the front endpapers.  Dating from the early 1970s, this copy has an original price of 18p printed on the back.
