Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. London: George G. Harrap & Co., Ltd., [1928].First trade edition. Quarto (9 13/16 x 7 1/2 inches; 250 x 191 mm.). 102, [1], [1, blank] pp. Eight color plates and thirty drawings in black and white.Publisher's green cloth pictorially stamped in gilt on front cover and lettered in gilt on spine. Top edge gilt, others uncut. Pictorial endpapers. A near fine copy in the original color pictorial dust jacket with just a few small edge chips.By 1928, the traditional Rackham book - freely and lavishly illustrated, and lushly produced - was, culturally no longer in fashion nor financially feasible. Artistically, Rackham's work was being overshadowed by a younger generation. Publisher George Harrap stepped in, took up the challenge, and, through production economies, published a new kind of Rackham book. But if the volumes were not as spectacular as in the past, the artwork was no less impressive.Latimore and Haskell, pp. 63-64. Riall, pp. 164-165. Bookseller Inventory # 03639

Item Description: Bell Publishing Company, Drexel Hill, Penn., 1935. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Rackham, Arthur (illustrator). First Edition. Undated; circa 1935. Large 8" x 10" gift book matching the original George Harrap first edition in overall design. Sienna full-cloth boards, color plate, gilt spine titles, light shelf wear, rub, bow. Cover plate depicts the dynamic haunted headless horseman, stylish titles graced by two mischievous elfen characters. Pages generally very good, clean and w/o writing; some tanning to endpapers, couple pages from news-clippings. Rare cream dust wrapper w/large front panel illustration matching front board and titles at spine, moderate wear, rub, discoloration; protected in new clear sleeve. Frontispiece color plate with printed tissue guard by Rackham: "Frequently see strange sights, and hear music and voices in the air." Beautifully and aptly illustrated throughout by the esteemed artist Arthur Rackham. Includes eight whimsically creepy full-color plates and partial-page imagery, decoration, headers and tailpieces throughout. Bind good; hinges intact. Rare near very good example in same wrapper. Contains a prologue by D. K., Irving's most well known public persona, Diedrich Knickerbocker. One of American literature's most enduring and popular tales, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow tells the tragic story of the love triangle that develops between the ill-fated Ichabod Crane, Brom Bones and Katrina Van Tassel. Lavishly decorated by Rackham in his, by turns, humorous and blood-curdling illustrations. Headless horsemen hail from Northern European storytelling, in German, Irish, Scandinavian (The Wild Hunt) and English legends, and were included in Robert Burns's "Tam o' Shanter" (1790) and The Wild Huntsman (1796). Appearing as omens for those who disregard apparitions, these spectors found victims in proud schemers bearing hubris and arrogance. The most notable, however, was the spector of Sleepy Hollow, who had been riding the trails with his horse among the church yard graves. Enter Brom Bones, who made light of the galloping Hessian as an arrant horseman. He disaffirmed that returning one night from a neighboring village, being overtaken by the midnight trooper. That he had offered to race with him for a bowl of punch and should have won it too, for Daredevil beat the goblin horse all hollow, but as they came to the church bridge, the Hessian bolted and vanished in a flash of flame. All these haunts, told in a hushed undertone as men whisper in the dark, the countenances of the listeners only now and then receiving a casual gleam from the shine of a pipe, sank deep in the mind of Ichabod.Washington Irving was an American author, essayist, biographer and historian of the early 19th century. In 1809, he published, The History of New York, under his most well known public persona, Diedrich Knickerbocker. Irving is best known for his short stories, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" and "Rip Van Winkle". 102 pages. Insured post. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 019277

Scene features main characters below trees teeming with ghouls and black cats and Sleepy Hollow townscape in b.g. Beautifully aptly illustrated throughout by the esteemed artist Arthur Rackham. Includes eight whimsically creepy full-color plates w/tissue guards and partial-page imagery, decoration, headers and tailpieces throughout. Bind good; hinges intact. Contains a prologue by D. K., Irving's most well known public persona, Diedrich Knickerbocker. One of American literature's most enduring and popular tales, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow tells the tragic story of the love triangle that develops between the ill-fated Ichabod Crane, Brom Bones and Katrina Van Tassel. Lavishly decorated by Rackham in his, by turns, humorous and blood-curdling illustrations. Headless horsemen hail from Northern European storytelling, in German, Irish, Scandinavian (The Wild Hunt) and English legends, and were included in Robert Burns's "Tam o' Shanter" (1790) and The Wild Huntsman (1796). Appearing as omens for those who disregard apparitions, these spectors found victims in proud schemers bearing hubris and arrogance. The most notable, however, was the spector of Sleepy Hollow, who had been riding the trails with his horse among the church yard graves. Enter Brom Bones, who made light of the galloping Hessian as an arrant horseman. He disaffirmed that returning one night from a neighboring village, being overtaken by the midnight trooper. That he had offered to race with him for a bowl of punch and should have won it too, for Daredevil beat the goblin horse all hollow, but as they came to the church bridge, the Hessian bolted and vanished in a flash of flame. All these haunts, told in a hushed undertone as men whisper in the dark, the countenances of the listeners only now and then receiving a casual gleam from the shine of a pipe, sank deep in the mind of Ichabod.Washington Irving was an American author, essayist, biographer and historian of the early 19th century. In 1809, he published, The History of New York, under his most well known public persona, Diedrich Knickerbocker. Irving is best known for his short stories, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" and "Rip Van Winkle". 102 pages. Insured post. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 019209
