Description

Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding, Signed, With Slipcase

Limited edition, numbered 766 on 1001 copies. Signed by Rackham to the limitation page.

Collated, complete with 44 plates. 

During the ‘Golden Age’ of British book illustration Rackham was one of its leading artists. He used expressive line paired with a subtle use of watercolour to create his beautiful images. This work contains examples of Rackham's ethereal figures such as his elves, and goblins; his fairy tale characters; and his grotesque and fantastic. 

With an introduction by Sir Arthur Quiller Couch. 

Bookplate to the front pastedown, which was issued with this work,  is blank. 

Held in a custom slipcase, with marbled edges. 

A beautiful example of this important illustrator's works.
