Arthur Rackham’s Book of Pictures; Signed Limited Edition

This will be my last post for a while. I’m going to be
without computer access for a couple of weeks but hope to be able to start
posting and visiting you all again in July.

In the meantime, feast your eyes on these
wonderful illustrations from Arthur Rackham’s Book of Pictures Number 186 of a Limited edition of 1,030
numbered copies signed by Arthur Rackham of which 1000, numbered 1-1000, were
for sale in Great Britain, Ireland and the Colonies; and thirty copies numbered 1001 – 1030 for presentation. Published by William Heinemann in 1913.

The illustrations in the book are grouped under different headings. So I will do the same…

On The Beach
Children in The Broardwalk, Kensington Gardens
Marjorie and Margaret
Grotesque & Fantastic
The Gossips

These illustrations are a small selection
from the 44 superb colour plates in the Arthur Rackham Book of Pictures. Each plate is mounted
on thick card behind a descriptive tissue guard. There are also 10 black-and-white
illustrations. All the plates are in superb clean condition, free from creasing
and tears. The original white cloth binding is soiled around the edges (see
full description and price here
As if all that loveliness were not enough the book is also
signed and numbered by Arthur Rackham! 

Thank you so much for taking the time to call in. I hope to
see you all again in July. Barbara x
