Rip Van Winkle

IRVING, Washington / RACKHAM, Arthur

RACKHAM, Arthur Rip Van Winkle

Heinemann, 1905.

First edition illustrated by Rackham. 4to. Original green cloth with gilt lettering and vignette. Fifty one colour plates by Rackham are mounted onto green art paper and protected by tissue guards, apart from the frontis they are all mounted together at the end of the text. A very good copy, with cloth and plates bright. As usual there is some spotting to the text, especially to the preliminary and latter sections. The final five pages have corner creases to the green art paper, not affecting the illustrations themselves.

This book was the first of the opulent Christmas Gift books. Its beauty and popularity began the "Golden Age of Book Illustration," in which publishers and illustrators competed to present the most beautiful volumes to the gift market.
