Spine darkened, extremities of binding a little rubbed but overall an excellent copy."The immediate aftermath of the war brought Some British Ballads (1919), and the two volumes of Cinderella (1919) and The Sleeping Beauty (1920), retold by C.S. Evans, in which his gift for silhouette was given full play?" (Derek Hudson. Arthur Rackham. His Life and Work, p. 108)."Rackham gave his talk to on Silhouettes to the Art Workers' Guild in November 1919, the month in which Cinderella, the first of his two great silhouette books, was published. Cinderella and The Sleeping Beauty differed from Rackhams' preceding books in relying almost wholly for their effect on silhouette. It is immediately clear that Rackham is a master of the medium, being able to evoke character and humour by profile and gesture alone, and allowing the two-dimensional effect of his pen work to lead the reader through the book and keep the story going. Silhouette books, even with additional colours had lower production costs than their colour plate equivalents, and so were an attractive option both for publishers and customers in the uncertain post-war market." (James Hamilton. Arthur Rackham, A Biography, p. 188).Riall, p. 142 (mentioning only the 1/1200 unsigned copies); Latimore and Haskell, pp. 51/52 (mentioning only the trade edition).
