6th printing. A fairy story about a water spirit who marries a knight and then returns to her home in the Mediterranean Sea.. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham with 15 color plates tipped onto heavy art stock, with titled tissue guards. Bound in quarter buckram and green paper boards with darker green stamped title and illustration on front. Illustrated endpapers. 136 pp. A rough copy, missing one plate (2 others are loose but still present), the pages have some toning and offsetting and scattered foxing, boards are heavily shelfworn with a discolored rectangle on the front cover (as if perhaps some blue paper had been there and transferred to the boards) and a bend to the rear board - Still this is far from the worst copy out there, and the binding is still sturdy, if not pretty and the illustrations are lovely. .
