About this Item

224 pages. 27 x 21 cm. Limited edition copy 643 of 750, signed by Rackham. Twelve mounted color plates with lettered tissue guards, 25 black and white illustrations, and pictorial endpapers in cream and brown. The signed, limited editions were in great demand. Rackham noted, "There is such a fashion for publishing only limited editions that my books are in a rather curious position. The ordinary editions do not sell so large a number as of old, & the limiteds are vastly over-applied for." [see: Hamilton, "Arthur Rackham"], p142. LATTIMORE & HASKELL p.66. Fresh, crisp copy; plates and text clean and bright, partly unopenend, slight toning to backstrip, small adhesion front cover, slight toning bottom back cover, with prospectus for "The Night Before Christmas," the next book Rackham illustrated for Harrap, laid-in. Orig. paneled and lettered vellum. Teg. Near fine. Bookseller Inventory # 20388
