Fairy Tale Illustrations on a Gloomy Day

It's a rather gloomy and grey day outside.  Coffee is taking longer than usual to kick in, so I'm not feeling particularly articulate.  It seems like a good day to look at pretty pictures.

Elenore Abbott for The Six Swans from Grimm's Fairy Tales,  Charles Scribners' Sons, 1920. 

Joseph Alexander Adams for Sleeping Beauty from The Fairy Book, Harper & Brothers, 1836.

Frank Godwin for Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp from Blue Fairy Book, Edited by Andrew Lang, David McKay, 1921.

Uncredited Illus. for Le Calife Cigogne from Contes Merveilleux by Wilhelm Hauff,  Maison Alfred Mame,  Circa 1890.
