Grimm's Fairy Tales

RACKHAM, Arthur

RACKHAM, Arthur Grimm's Fairy Tales

Constable, 1909.

First Rackham edition. Large 4to. Edition de Luxe, number 665 of 750 copies signed by Arthur Rackham. Full white vellum with gilt embossed lettering and decoration. Top edge gilt and others untrimmed. Lacking silk ties. Forty mounted colour plates under captioned tissue guards and numerous black and white illustrations. A very good copy indeed, plate at page 280 with tiniest corner turn, barely discernible.

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.
A heavy book, it is unusual to find this deluxe edition in nice condition. Contains all the favourite fairy tales from the Brothers Grimm.
