About this Item

Rackham Illustrated Edition of The Night Before ChristmasWith Four Full-Page Color Plates[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. MOORE, Clement C. The Night Before Christmas. Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott Co., [1931]. Later American trade edition. Octavo (8 3/8 x 5 1/2 in; 213 x 140 mm). [35], [3] pp. Four color plates and seventeen black and white drawings. Publisher's green cloth, front cover lettered in black. All edges trimmed. Pictorial endpapers printed in red. A near fine copy in the original color pictorial dust jacket depicting the plate "The children were nestled all snug in their beds." Dust jacket a little worn at extremities."The style of work for a series of poems published by Harrap and Sons in the early thirties returned unashamedly to the early style. These books were The Night Before Christmas (1931), The King Of The Golden River (1932), Goblin Market (1933) and The Pied Piper of Hamelin (1934). (Gettings, p. 161)."For the next three years Rackham and Harrap had a successful arrangement whereby two Rackham books, a long one and a shorter one, were published together annually. Thus in 1931, they brought out Walton's The Compleat Angler and Clement Moore's poem The Night Before Christmas. The limited edition of the latter sold out promptly." (Hamilton, p. 142).Latimore and Haskell, p. 66. Riall p. 174. Bookseller Inventory # 03812
