The Rhinegold and the Valkyrie

Wagner's Ring of the Niblung

WAGNER, Richard / RACKHAM, Arthur

RACKHAM, Arthur The Rhinegold and the Valkyrie Wagner's Ring of the Niblung

Heinemann, 1910.

First edition illustrated by Rackham. 4to. Tan buckram with gilt lettering and illustration to cover and spine. In the original printed dustwrapper. Pictorial endpapers. Thirty four colour plates mounted onto brown art paper and protected by tissue guards with printed captions. In addition to the colour plates are numerous line drawings in the text. A very good copy indeed, plates bright and crisp, text clean, and boards with gilt nice and bright. The dustwrapper is in very good condition, with some small chips and tears.

Together with its companion volume, Siegfried and the Twilight of the Gods, Wagner's epic tale of dwarves, Gods and heroes allowed Rackham the chance to draw on the German art which inspired him so greatly. His paintings for these volumes are often considered amongst his best work.
