Heinemann, 1910.

First edition illustrated by Rackham. 4to. Tan buckram with gilt lettering and illustration to cover and spine. Loosely inserted is the advertising slip for the exhibition of the original paintings at the Leicester Galleries, London. Pictorial endpapers. 34 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, clean and fresh. There is slight fading to the spine and and some patches of foxing to the preliminary pages.

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 this volume often considered amongst his best work.
