Description:

DE LUXE LIMITED EDITION OF ONLY 1450 COPIES SIGNED BY ARTIST ARTHUR RACKHAM and printed on large paper. With 13 fine tipped-in colour plates on heavy stock with captioned tissue-guards, and with 53 black and white illustrations, 19 of which are full-page, all by Arthur Rackham. 4to, original white buckram lettered and pictorially decorated in gilt on the upper cover and spine after designs by Arthur Rackham, t.e.g. xxix, 224pp. A very pleasing copy of this signed, limited first edition, internally very fresh and clean with fine plates, the binding sturdy and firm with no wear, the spine mellowed to a darker ivory as is normal. Engraved armorial bookplate on front endpaper of George Kitchin, possibly George William Kitchin, first Chancellor of the University of Durham and the last Dean of Durham Cathedral to govern the university. THE VERY SCARCE AND FINE FIRST EDITION DE LUXE IN ORIGINAL CLOTH, SIGNED by artist Arthur Rackham. Only 1450 hand-numbered copies were printed. The edition includes hundreds of individual fables and a noteworthy introduction by G. K Chesterton. Rackham pictorially evokes the classic ĎAesopís Fablesí with humour and delightful whimsy, aiming his creativity once again to his loyal child audience. The book was well received at its publication and sold well, and continued to be popular for decades following. It is chock full of black and white embellishment and illustration, elegant silhouettes, and color illustrations. Meant to amuse and pique his young viewers, he artfully rendered trees with human features, cats with top hats and overcoats, the ocean as a mystical woman, and the forces of nature charged with human attributes and emotion. These imaginative and refined images are sure to please any generation of readers. Scattered among the illustrations are several caricatures of the artist himself as in the man who catches the flea, and the slave-owner who scrubs the black boy. Rackhamís depiction of these timeless fables once again demonstrates his gift for supplying memorable visual interpretations of familiar well-loved works of literature. Chesterton writes in his introduction of Aesopís Fables that "It matters nothing how old they are, or how new; they are the alphabet of humanity, which like so many forms of primitive picture-writing employs any living symbol in preference to man." Rackham helps us to celebrate their time honored simplicity and common sense in his captivating and amusing collection of pictures. Bookseller Inventory #
