About this Item

First edition, English sheets for American distribution with Lippincott’s name added to the titlepage. With a tipped-in full colour frontispiece, double titlepage and 3 double page silhouettes decorated in pink and green, and numerous black & white silhouettes, some full page throughout all by Arthur Rackham. 4to, in the original pictorial paper boards featuring one of Rackham’s silhouette illustrations printed in pink and black, backed in pink cloth lettered in black, in VERY SCARCE original brown paper dustjacket printed with Rackham's silhouettes and lettering in black. 110. An especially bright and fine copy, internally clean and perfect, the boards in especially nice shape with only the lightest hint of age, the jacket complete and clean with only trival edgewear and short split at the fold line of one flap. AN OUTSTANDING COPY, ONE OF THE BEST PRESERVED WE HAVE SEEN. SLEEPING BEAUTY is, like CINDERELLA, one of Rackham’s magnificently illustrated fairy tales with his signature silhouette drawings. They take a bit of a different approach to book illustrating then his beloved colour-plates, but are effectively beautiful and quite pleasant to the eye. Bookseller Inventory # 27199
