RACKHAM, Arthur Mother Goose The Old Nursery Rhymes

Heinemann, 1913.

First Rackham edition. Edition de Luxe. Large 4to. Number 375 of 1130 copies printed on hand made paper, signed and numbered by Arthur Rackham. Publisher's white buckram, with gilt lettering and vignettes. Top edge gilt and other edges untrimmed. Thirteen tipped in colour plates under captioned tissue guards, one black and white plate of Little Bo Peep is also tipped in. The many line and silhouette drawings are both full page and small vignettes set within the text. A very good copy, spine somewhat darkened and boards a little dusty.

This book is a very wide selection of nursery rhymes. The frontispiece to this title has a self portrait of the artist in the guise of Jack sprat, though Sprat's wife bears no resemblance to Edyth, Rackham's own wife.
