Irish Fairy Tales

RACKHAM, Arthur / STEPHENS, James

EDITION DE LUXE IN DUSTWRAPPER

RACKHAM, Arthur Irish Fairy Tales

Macmillan, 1920.

First Rackham edition. Edition de Luxe. One of only 520 copies signed by Arthur Rackham. Large 4to. Original quarter parchment over boards, spine titled in gilt and gilt vignette to upper cover. Sixteen colour plates are mounted onto tan art paper and set within a border, under captioned tissue guards. There are also various chapter headings in black and white. An exceptional copy. A book which rarely survives in clean condition, this copy is extremely bright, with just light bumps to corners and offsetting to the endpapers from the original dustwrapper. The exceedingly rare dustwrapper has some chips and tears, but remains clean and attractive, with the printed price of £3/3- intact.

The Bookman, 1920, describes these tales as "for the child whose parents worship Ireland, for those with adoration for her legends."
