What Our Customers Say...

Description

Fine Binding, First Edition, Illustrated

In a stunning half morocco binding, with paper covered boards. 

With a frontispiece, and eleven plates. Collated, complete. 

A crisp copy of this beautifully presented work. 

During the ‘Golden Age’ of British book illustration Rackham was one of its leading artists. Many of the works he illustrated were published in a De Luxe limited edition in addition to a smaller trade edition. This is a trade edition of Oliver Goldsmith's works. Stylistically, Rackham’s illustrations reflected pen and India ink drawings. He used expressive line paired with a subtle use of watercolour to create his beautiful images.

The Vicar of Wakefield is often referred to as a fictitious memoir novel. It contains several literary genres within its novel structure such as poems, histories and sermons.
