About this Item

First edition, the U.S. issue. With the famed 50 tipped-in color plates bound in rear as issue, and with several line drawings, all by Arthur Rackham. 4to, olive-green cloth lettered and decorated pictorially in gilt on upper cover and spine. 126. A very nice copy of this first edition. The plates are all pristine and bright, the text block very clean and fresh, the tissues with minor light spotting as they are prone, the cloth in very good order with much less then typical wear, a bit minor rubbing or mellowing only and a small unobtrusive mark on the rear cover, the gilt fresh, the cloth bright, front hinge a bit shaken. Rackham s most famous book. Within, we find many of the artist s best loved and most easily recognized paintings, masterfully reproduced and bound in the rear and as identical to the first British issue of 1906. 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." All of the early issues in the original format of this title are becoming very hard to find. This is a very nice copy well preserved. Bookseller Inventory # 24201
