A Midsummer Night's Dream

RACKHAM, Arthur / SHAKESPEARE, William

SIGNED LIMITED EDITION

RACKHAM, Arthur A Midsummer Night's Dream

Heinemann, 1908.

First edition. Edition de Luxe, number 993 of 1000 copies signed by Rackham. Large 4to. Publisher's full white vellum with gilt lettering and design. Top edge gilt and others untrimmed. Original silk ties (rear detatched, front holding on by a thread). Housed in original card slipcase. Forty colour plates, mounted onto brown art paper and protected by tissue guards, and many delicate line drawings. A fine copy, with exceptionally clean vellum and bright gilt, with only a hint of dustiness to the spine. Housed in publisher's slipcase, which has been repaired at the joints and lacks a small portion from the upper edge, but has had the effect of preserving the condition of the book.

This is one of Rackham's most sought after books, the weaving of magic and fairies being perfectly suited to his style. The limited edition is seldom encountered in such sparkling condition.
