About this Item: The Heritage Press Illustrated Bookshelf, New York, 1959. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. Rackham, Arthur (illustrator). First Edition. From the Heritage Illustrated Bookshelf. Early printing; May, 1959. Bluish-green buckram (cloth) boards, maroon cover design, spine titles, light shelf wear. Front board depicts mother frog in costume. Pages near fine. Maroon page edges at all sides. Antiquarian address label inside cover: "Elaine Braun, 450 Midway Avenue, San Mateo, Cal." Smooth semi-gloss plates by Arthur Rackham throughout. Bind fine; hinges intact. Dust wrapper, moderate edge wear, rub, chip; clipped, protected in new clear sleeve. A classic of children's literature first published in 1908 by Charles Scribner's Sons. Appreciated for its mingling of pace, the tale focuses on four anthropomorphized animal characters in a pastoral version of England and is uniquely enchanting in its mixture of mysticism, adventure, codes, and camaraderie. The story was saved from obscurity by then-famous playwright, A.A. Milne, who loved it and adapted a part of it for the stage as Toad of Toad Hall. The book made Grahame's fortune, enabling him to retire. He moved to the country, where he spent time by the River Thames doing much as the animal characters in his book do -- namely, as one of the most famous phrases from the book says, 'simply messing about in boats'. The seventh chapter of the book, 'The Piper at the Gates of Dawn,' inspired the successful band Pink Floyd on their debut album. 190 pages. Insured post. Size: 8vo - over 7 - 9" Tall.

While the slipcase is in need of repair/replacement, the volume itself is very handsome. Very Good+ (Textblock Fine) in Good+ Slipcase. Seller Inventory # 3712

About this Item: London: Methuen & Co., 1951, 1951. The "One Hundredth Edition" of "Wind in the Willows" [RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. GRAHAME, Kenneth. The Wind in the Willows. Introduction by A.A. Milne. London: Methuen & Co., [1951]. "One hundredth edition." Limited to 500 numbered copies (of which this is number 361), printed on handmade paper. Large quarto (11 3/4 x 9 1/4 inches; 298 x 235 mm.). [2, blank], xii, 178 pp. Twelve mounted color plates (including frontispiece), twelve black and white vignette chapter headings, and three other black and white drawings. Internally fine and fresh. Publisher's full white calf, smooth spine lettered in gilt. Small repaired split at foot of spine, neat ink inscription dated 1952 on front free end-paper. A very good copy. "This book was first issued on October 8th, 1908, since when it has been reprinted in a variety of editions, illustrated and unillustrated, 99 times. This one hundredth edition, published in 1951, is printed on handmade paper and is limited to 500 copies" (p. [iv]). Published originally by The Limited Editions Club in 1940 with sixteen color illustrations only, but not published in England until 1950 by Methuen. This is the first deluxe edition to have the twelve black and white vignette chapter headings, and the three other black and white drawings. "The book is a gentle delight, presenting illustrations which in no way fight with the more famous imaginative world created by Shepherd, although if Shepherd had not preceded him, then Rackham might have anthropomorphized his creatures even more. Several of the plates are delightful: The 'Golden Day when the three heroes walked by the Caravan, Mole leading a happy horse', (color-plate opposite page 18) and the placid Rat handing a hamper to put into a boat (color-plate opposite page 6), a plate famous among Rackham lovers because it was the boat for which Rackham forgot to draw the oars, an omission which some see as significant in view of the artist's imminent death. Perhaps the most interesting picture is the color-plate opposite page 98, which depicts the egocentric toad levelled to the drab clothes of a no-pocket washer woman, hopping about permissively, totally unequipped for the real contest. In the real world of people, like all egoists, animal or human, he is alien, and it is a typical piece of Rackhamerie that we should see two children laughing at the glum toad, not because he is a toad, but because he is obviously pretending to be something else". (Gettings, Arthur Rackham. pp 168-169). Riall, p. 200. Seller Inventory # 04220
