About this Item: John Lane the Bodley Head Limited, London, 1928. "This Large Paper Edition, printed on a specially made rag paper, is limited to two hundred and seventy-five copies for sale, of which this is No. 117. Signed by Kenneth Grame and Ernest H. Shepard." on the special limitation page. Handsomely bound in a quarter vellum spine stamped brightly in gold. And marbled paper-covered boards. Very clean and tight throughout; deckle-edged paper. Top edges gilded. Scattered foxing to the endpapers and the paste-downs only. With 28 splendid full-page illustrations by Ernest H. Shepard. A very handsome copy of this charming book. The Golden Age is a collection of reminiscences of childhood, written byKenneth Grahame and first published in book form in 1895, by The Bodley Head in London and by Stone & Kimball in Chicago. The Prologue and six of the stories had previously appeared in the National Observer, the journal then edited by William Ernest Henley. Widely praised upon its first appearance Algernon Charles Swinburne, writing in the Daily Chronicle,called it "one of the few books which are well-nigh too praiseworthy for praise" the book has come to be regarded as a classic in its genre. Typical of his culture and his era, Grahame casts his reminiscences in imagery and metaphor rooted in the culture of Ancient Greece; to the children whose impressions are recorded in the book, the adults in their lives are "Olympians", while the chapter titled "The Argonauts" refers to Perseus, Apollo, Psyche, and similar figures of Greek mythology. Grahame's reminiscences, in The Golden Age and in the later Dream Days (1898), were notable for their conception "of a world where children are locked in perpetual warfare with the adult 'Olympians' who have wholly forgotten how it feels to be young" a theme later explored by J.M. Barrie and other authors. (Wikipedia) First Edition signed/limited edition on large paper. Seller Inventory # 539
