Description:

LIMITED SIGNED LARGE-PAPER ISSUE OF THE FIRST EDITION, one of only 750 numbered copies SIGNED by Arthur Rackham. This being copy 21 a very early number of the 600 copies for sale in England. With 13 impressive colour plates, two black and white illustrations and several line drawings as chapter heading or tail pieces, all by Arthur Rackham 4to, publisher's original ivory buckram decoratively stamped and lettered in gilt on the front cover and the spine, t.e.g., others untrimmed, pictorially decorated endpapers with Rackham illustrations printed in gold, original rose silk ties. xv, 291pp. A fine copy, very bright and extremely well preserved, internally near as pristine and with perfect plates, the ivory cloth ever so slightly mellowed on the spine panel. Engraved armorial bookplate on front blank free-fly 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. A BEAUTIFUL COPY OF THE SCARCE SIGNED LIMITED FIRST EDITION, this being one of the copies reserved for sale in Great Britain. This fine deluxe issue included one additional colourplate not included in the trade issues. Rackham has created a very special printing of Jonathan Swiftís 18th century satire. In 1899 an edition of this book had been issued with Rackhamís early drawings and no colour plates. As his reputation grew, the publisher asked for additional drawings and paintings and issued this new version. Rackham created a fresh set of illustrations which employed high-contrast linear designs tinged with washes of subtle color. The result was a collection of powerful images with striking emotional contrasts, well-suited to the spectacular travels of Gulliver. Rackham was able to graphically depict Gulliver kneeling on the floor with the Lilliputian tailors gazing up at him while measuring him for a new suit. And in his painting, 'Gulliverís Combat With The Wasps', he dramatically portrays a handful of huge wasps swirling menacingly around Gulliverís teetering form. The trials, tribulations, and exploits of Gulliverís travels are magnificently portrayed here by the master illustrator. Bookseller Inventory #
