About this Item

First printing of the large paper and extra-illustrated edition. With 50 tipped-in color plates, plus 12 full page line drawings and illustrations in the text by Arthur Rackham. 4to, original pale green buckram lettered and elaborately decorated in gilt on spine and cover, in the RARE dustjacket. 123. An especially fine copy, very rare in the dustjacket, only minor and far less then expected age evidence. The best edition of Rackham's most desirable book: here, first appeared the colored frontispiece, the twelve additional line drawings also appear in this edition for the first time, and the color plates are interspersed throughout the text, rather than being bound together at the rear as in the 1906 edition. This appears to be a variant issue--the binding is buckram rather than the usual coarse cloth, and the dustjacket is a variant printing. PETER PAN is Rackham's most famous book. Within, we find many of the artist’s best loved and most easily recognized paintings. Perhaps the Pall Mall Gazette summed it best when they said, "Mr. Rackham seems to have dropped out of some cloud in Mr. Barrie’s fairyland, sent by a special providence to make pictures in tune with his whimsical genius.".
