Grimm's Fairy Tales

GRIMM, Jacob and Wilhelm / RACKHAM, Arthur

What a book for any child, big or small, to find on Christmas morning

GRIMM, Jacob and Wilhelm / RACKHAM, Arthur Grimm's Fairy Tales

Constable, 1909.

First Rackham edition. Large 4to. Edition de Luxe, number 513 of 750 copies signed by Arthur Rackham. Full white vellum with gilt embossed lettering and decoration. Top edge gilt and others untrimmed. Lacking rear silk tie. Forty colour plates mounted under captioned tissue guards, as well as numerous black and white illustrations. A very good copy indeed. The vellum uncommonly clean and with only minimal dustiness, the paper is clean and fresh, as are the illustrations, only one of which has a tiny corner crease. A most impressive book.

What a book for any child, big or small, to find on Christmas morning as its new property left by Santa Claus!...a picture wherever a picture can be put ...a possession which will win him the envy not only of his brothers and sisters, but of all the grown-ups too. Contemporary review, The Bookman, 1909.
Contains all the favourite fairy tales from the Brothers Grimm, such as Hansel and Grethel, Red Riding Hood and Rapunzel.
