About this Item: Kiepenheuer ND, Weimar. Hardcover. Condition: g. Limited Edition. 1/800 copies. 8vo. 346pp. Original vellum bindung with gold and blue lettering to cover and spine. Top edge gilt. Remnants of clasp. Gold endpapers. Frontispiece, protected by tissue guard. Magnificently illustrated with 50 tipped-in reproductions of water color images by the renowned illustrator Edmond Dulac (1882-1953), all protected by captioned tissue guards. Edmund (born Edmond) Dulac was a book illustrator prominent during the so called "Golden Age of Illustration" (the first quarter or so of the twentieth century). A wonderful translation of the Arabian Nights/Thousand and One Night into German. Thousand and One Night is a classic collection of stories bound together by one frame story, similar to Foccacio's Decamerone, with which it has often been compared. Spine chipped and damaged. Boards bowed. Scuffing, rubbing, staining to boards and spine. Remnants of clasp at boards, with clasp missing. Ex-libris plate to inside of front board. Tissue guard of frontispiece torn but complete. In German. Binding in fair, book in very good condition. Edmund (born Edmond) Dulac was a book illustrator prominent during the so called "Golden Age of Illustration" (the first quarter or so of the twentieth century). He was among the youngest of this generation of illustrators that includes, among others, Arthur Rackham. Born in Toulouse, France, he moved to London in 1904. It's important to understand the timing of Dulac's arrival in London. Until the mid-1890s, there had been no economical method of reproducing color plates. Printing methods in those days varied from printer to printer and were most often patented - and were always being improved. The invention of the process we now call "color separation" made it possible to mass-produce color images and by 1905 they improved the process to create images that were very faithful to the originals. The only drawback was that they had to be printed on a special coated paper and therefore couldn't be bound into the book with the rest of the pages. They had to be tipped-in. One of the earliest manifestations of this was the Arthur Rackham's Rip Van Winkle in 1905. The illustrated gift-book was born just as Edmund Dulac arrived. Rackham was a grizzled veteran of ten years in the illustration business and Dulac was looking for his first assignment. How odd that these two men would dominate the new market.

About this Item: Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott Co., [1936]., 1936. 4to., (10 x 7 ¾ inches). Pictorial half-title, vignette title page, partially unopened. Color-printed frontispiece and 11 color plates with tissue guards present, head and tail pieces at the beginning and end of each act (one or two spots, lightly toned). Original publisher's orange cloth gilt, pictorial endpapers (spine faded, extremities bumped). First American edition, first published in London the same year. Partially unopened with all illustrations and tissue guards present. One of the last books that Arthur Rackham illustrated. "His drawings for Peer Gynt [are] remarkably fresh and interesting" (Hudson, p. 140). "In the troll scenes, or in Peer's moorland encounter with the threadballs Rackhamerie abounds" (Gettings, p. 165). Arthur Rackham was a painter and illustrator who took evening classes at the Lambeth School of Art under the landscape painter William Llewellyn. He was encouraged to submit his illustrations to magazines, "but to earn a secure living Rackham became a junior clerk in the Westminster fire office in 1885, a post he held until 1892. He resigned to join the staff of the Pall Mall Budget as a news and features illustrator, and the following year he moved to the Westminster Budget and the Westminster Gazette. By now he was living in Buckingham Chambers, Strand, and was widening his practice by illustrating books for publishers. His name and reliability for delivery and content became known to publishers and public alike, and he was increasingly in demand. Rackham's first notable successes, which coincided with the beginnings of the fashion for lavishly produced gift books, were illustrations to 'The Ingoldsby Legends' (1898), 'Gulliver's Travels' (1900), and 'Grimm's Fairy Tales' (1900). These were followed by 'The Greek Heroes' (1903), 'Rip Van Winkle' (1905), 'Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens' (1906), and 'Alice in Wonderland' (1907). "In the earlier books Rackham's style tended to take on the appearance of woodcuts, with the main features being drawn in thick pen and brush. From 1905 to 1910, as printing techniques improved, his line became sharper and likewise his detail more intense. In Rip Van Winkle and A Midsummer Night's Dream (1908) he developed his gift for drawing witches, gnomes, fairies, and anthropomorphized trees and brought them to a pitch of vivid characterization, sometimes with an unsettling frisson of horror. Trees with human limbs and faces became one of his trademarks, and may have been throwbacks to childhood memories of the Tradescants' garden. Despite the fantasy of his subjects, however, Rackham always maintained a strict sense of reality by giving his figures human traits and foibles and naturalistic, even recognizable, settings-illustrations in A Midsummer Night's Dream are variously set in Wimbledon Park, Ruislip churchyard, and Walberswick, Suffolk "Unlike his contemporary Edmund Dulac, Rackham was not a bold colourist. He tended to restrict his palette to soft blues, greens, and reds, in local highlights or in several layers of transparent watercolour wash, over a yellowy-buff tone which gives to the whole a quality of vellum, or age. This was a practical as well as an artistic decision, as colour handled in this way could be faithfully reproduced by the three-colour separation printing process which was a new feature of pre-First World War book production "In tune with the changing times, Rackham's style during the 1920s began to adopt hints of art deco, even of syncopation. This was a manner in which he was perhaps uneasy, but nevertheless his natural sense of design, of characterization, and his lyrical handling of line and wash did not leave him. Nor was there any perceptible change in the sympathetic approach he had always adopted to the reading of the texts he had chosen to illustrate. He had a keen ear for the moods his authors evoked and a natural understanding of the subtleties of human expression. This was the mature grounding which he drew upon throughout his ca.

About this Item: David McKay, New York, 1929. Vellum. Condition: Very Good. Arthur Rackham (illustrator). Limited Edition. New York, David McKay, 1929. Full vellum with gilt titles, spine titles, borders and spine decoration. Top edge gilt. Deckled edges. Decorative endpapers. 232 pp. No. 160 of 200 copies of the American Edition. LIMITED, NUMBERED AND BOLDLY SIGNED BY ILLUSTRATOR ARTHUR RACKHAM. The total number of this deluxe illustrated edition was 775 of which 200 were for America, making this American edition the scarcer of the two. Illustrated with 12 full mounted color plates. Also many in text line drawings. This copy is very sound and complete, generally very bright, white, clean pages, of which approximately 1/3 remain unopened. The frontispiece is lightly foxed at margins as are the following five illustrations, but the frontispiece (see photos) is clearly the more foxed and each following illustration shows less and less marginal foxing. The remaining 6 illustrations are unfoxed, and all images are unaffected by the marginal foxing. (The photos show the frontispiece and the first unfoxed page). There is also foxing to the first few pages, (through the limitation page) and the last two pages. Otherwise, as noted above, the interior text pages are uniformly bright, white, clean, fresh and unblemished. The boards are lightly to moderately soiled/darkened, with much which could be removed with careful use of an eraser. Overall a very good copy with excellent illustrations for those who are charmed by the singular, distinctive style of line and color which makes Arthur Rackham one of the great book illustrators of the modern era.

The signed limited edition contains one extra colored plate that is not found in the trade edition - the frontispiece.The signed limited edition contains one extra colored plate that is not found in the trade edition - the frontispiece."[Rackham's] drawings for Swinburne's poems of childhood, The Springtide of Life?attracted the admiration of Edmund Gosse, who expressed his appreciation in a preface and told Rackham personally (18th October 1918: 'This volume will not merely be he best book of the present art-season, but a joy to all sensitive people for years and years to come'" (Hudson, Arthur Rackham His Life and Work, p. 108)."As the close of his life approached, Swinburne frequently expressed his intention to extract from his various volumes those poems which were addressed to children, or were descriptive of child-life, and to publish them in a separate collection. He died without having found occasion to carry out this plan, and he left no directions with regard to the way in which it ought to be done? One reason why Swinburne never brought out such a collection was his failure to find an artist who could interpret to his satisfaction the simplicity and freshness of his verses. We are fortunate in having secured, in Mr. Arthur Rackham, one whose delicate and romantic fancy is in sensitive harmony with Swinburne's, and who understands, no less than he did, how "Heaven lies about us in our infancy."
