This is a 1930 edition of The Red Fairy Book with the cover and several illustrations by Frederick Richardson, who also did some beautiful work on Queen Zixi of Ix, which you can see over on Mr. Door Tree's blog site. Here, Richardson's illustrations are not as lush or rich as those by some of his contemporaries, but they are certainly not without charm, especially the cover. The rest of this edition was filled in with the original Ford and Speed pen drawings. I'm including one of Ford's at the bottom of this post.
