ELUSIVE ARTHUR RACKHAM FIRST EDITION and a beautiful collaboration of one of the world’s greatest story tellers with one of the 20th century’s finest illustrators. Here we find a wide assortment of Hans Christian Andersen's well-loved tales beautifully illustrated by Arthur Rackham. Included in the collection are old favorites such as Thumbelina, The Princess and the Pea, The Emperor’s New Clothes, and The Little Match Girl, all affectionately illustrated by the artist. As his career developed, Rackham worked closely with his publisher to find works of literature which were likely to appeal to seasonal book buyers but which also lent themselves to his artistic proclivities. Hans Anderson’s Fairy Tales offered him this ideal combination. Harrap, excited by the prospect of Rackham’s new endeavor, sponsored a trip for him to Denmark to sketch and imbibe the landscape and architecture. "The Observer invited Hugh Walpole to choose the best picture-book of 1932. "I give the prize without hesitation to Rackham's Hans Andersen,' Walpole replied. 'He has risen nobly to his subject. He has acquired a new tenderness and grace. His fantasy is stronger than ever.' Twenty-five years after its publication, the Hans Anderson had become one of the most difficult of Rackham's books to buy second-hand" (Hudson, Arthur Rackham His Life and Work; p. 133-34).
