We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for RIP VAN WINKLE by [Rackham, illus.] Irving Washington.

Description:

A very early printing. 50 tipped-in color plates by Arthur Rackham, bound in rear as issued. 4to, original olive green cloth, letterd in gilt on the spine and lettered and pictorially illustrated in gilt on the upper cover. xii, 61, illustrated plates. A very handsome copy, internally uncommonly clean with fresh and bright plates. The green cloth in bright and with only a bit of minor mellowing by time. WITH THE 50 HIGHLY IMPRESSIVE COLOUR PLATES BY ARTHUR RACKHAM. Rackham’s RIP VAN WINKLE was originally issued in 1905 to great critical acclaim. Many compared his style to the German illustrators and The Times called it a "marvel of his Dureresque detail." Like the first edition, this copy contains the aggregate of illustrations at the back of the book mounted on thick green paper. The story is essentially told twice, first in Irving’s five thousand words, and then in Rackham’s 50 evocative illustrations. "Interspersed with the genre scenes of village life are the imaginative subjects such as little mountain men, ghosts, and the squaw spirit ‘who hung up the new moons in the skies and cut up the old ones into stars.’ "It was subjects such as these which were to run away with Rackham’s reputation, and influence our perception of his genius for lively human characterization."-J. Hamilton Derek Hudson also has some fine words for this work: "This lovely book decisively established Rackham as the leading decorative illustrator of the Edwardian period. One does not know which to admire most--the superb artistry of his landscapes, the poetry of the scenes of Rip by the riverside, the charm of his children and fairies, or the grotesque groups of Henrick Hudson and his crew which so long anticipated the art of Walt Disney" (Hudson, p. 57). Rackham's success with RIP VAN WINKLE led to his collaboration with J. M. Barrie on PETER PAN, perhaps his greatest work. Bookseller Inventory #
