Benjamin Tighe’s expert eye helped him find remarkable American children’s books for AAS, including this rare edition of Andersen fairy tales.  Two Boston women, one an artist and the other a translator, prepared this edition as a fundraiser for Children’s Hospital. Published in a small edition for a wealthy audience, the book was issued in lithographed paper-covered boards.
