The Tempest

SHAKESPEARE, William / RACKHAM, Arthur

We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep.

RACKHAM, Arthur The Tempest

Heinemann, 1926.

First edition illustrated by Rackham. 4to. Black cloth with lettering and vignette in gilt. Top edge yellow. Twenty beautiful mounted colour plates and various line drawings, all in crisp and fresh. The title page is elaborately decorated in black and white and makes a stunning beginning to the play. A near fine example, with the slightest bumping to the spine tip.

The magic of Shakespeare's play, with the lively spirit Ariel, Caliban the monster, a ship wreck and love story all create the perfect foil for Rackham's pen. His drawings for this book mark something of a departure from earlier work, introducing a bolder style and colour palette, whilst losing none of his humour or attention to detail.
