Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. London: George Harrap & Co., [1932]. One of 575 copies signed by Arthur Rackham, this being copy No. 385. Octavo (8 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches; 222 x 146 mm.). 47, [1] pp. Four color plates and fifteen drawings in black and white. Original limp vellum. Pictorial endpapers in green and white. Top edge gilt, others uncut. Covers very lightly dust-soiled, otherwise a fine copy. Chemised in a green cloth slipcase with red morocco gilt lettering label.John Ruskin (1819-1900), "English author and artist, whose The King of the Golden River might be regarded as the first English fairy story for children. Though it was not published until 1851, seven years after Francis Paget's The Hope of the Katzekopfs, it was in fact written in 1841 for 12-year-old Effie Gray, whom he later married. It is a story of the three brothers of tradition, two bad, the youngest good, and their reception of a supernatural visitor, the South West Wind. Ruskin described it himself as 'a fairly good imitation of Grimm and Dickens, mixed with some true Alpine feeling of my own', but the South West Wind is a powerful and original character, described by Stephen Prickett [in Victorian Fantasy (1979)] as the 'first magical personage to show that combination of kindliness and eccentric irascibility that was to appear so strongly in a whole tradition of subsequent literature'. Richard Doyle, who illustrated the original edition, made a striking drawing of him. Edgar Taylor's translation of the Grimms' stories with illustrations by George Cruikshank was published in 1823; in Praeterita Ruskin recorded how he had copied these when he was 10 or 11. The book was reissued in 1868 with an introduction by Ruskin in which he spoke of the value of the traditional tales, with their power 'to fortify children against the glacial cold of selfish science'-a sentiment which lies at the heart of his own story" (The Oxford Companion to Fairy Tales).Latimore and Haskell, p. 67.

Item Description: London: Harrap, 1932. 8vo. 48pp. With 4 color plates and 15 black and white illustrations. Original full limp vellum, titles and decoration to upper board gilt, top edge gilt, housed in a paper slipcase with printed label. A fine copy. Limited to 570 numbered copies signed by Rackham. Rackham's critical reputation waxes and wanes over the decades like that of many, perhaps most, artists, but the undying appeal of his book illustrations for generation after generation of wide-eyed children remains constant. His Alice and Peter Pan are immortal, his ghosts and goblins inimitable, his trees and landscapes uniquely imaginative in ways that people of any age can respond to. His art utterly defines an era of children's book illustration in the way that Cruikshank and Greenaway did in their eras or Sendak did in ours. Bookseller Inventory # 106403

First Editions, First Printings and each being the vellum bound SIGNED LIMITED EDITION, signed by Arthur Rackham and numbered. Limited to 550 copies (Moore), 575 copies (Ruskin), 410 copies (Rossetti), and 410 copies (Browning). Each book with four fine colour plates and other fine decorations printed in various colours or in black throughout by Arthur Rackham. 8vo, publisher's original de luxe flexible vellum bindings, each one lettered in gilt on the upper cover, Rackham decorated endpapers printed in various colours, each in the original slipcases, three of which with printed paper labels hand-numbered. The set now housed together in a fine custom folding box backed in rust morocco featuring four faux spines with raised bands and fine gilt lettering and tooling. 36pp, 48pp; 46pp; 45pp. Each book is essentially as mint and pristine inside and out, the slipcases well preserved with only minimal evidence of age. The Rossetti is apparently an out of sequence copy, signed by Rackham and with its number blocked out. FIRST EDITION, LIMITED SIGNED ISSUE OF EACH OF THESE CLASSICS ILLUSTRATED BY ARTHUR RACKHAM. ALL IN AN UNUSUALLY FINE STATE OF PRESERVATION, A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO ACQUIRE ALL FOUR OF THESE ANNUAL LIMITED EDITION PUBLICATIONS TOGETHER. Harrap had made arrangements with Rackham to publish two books a year beginning in 1931. Each year there would be one long book and one short one. Collected here are the four short books. In 1931 Clement Moore’s classic Christmas poem received first class treatment by Arthur Rackham, and would be the only one written by an American. This no doubt explains why the copies of the limited edition reserved for America sold out quickly. In England it is considered to be the best known American poem. 1932 brought out John Ruskin's "Golden River". This story is told in the form of a medieval legend, and the illustrations are delightfully expressive of this spirit. It is the only one of the four written in prose. GOBLIN MARKET is a narrative poem by Christina Rossetti. She told her publisher, that the poem, often interpreted as having features of sexual imagery, was not meant for children. However, in public she stated that the poem was intended for children, and went on to write many children's poems. With illustrations both bursting with happiness and sufficiently frightening, fans of this master illustrator were not disappointed with THE PIED PIPER. It remains one of the best of Rackham’s shorter works and perhaps the finest rendition of Browning’s classic yet produced. Bookseller Inventory # 27254
