An excellent copy, the binding fresh and clean. Housed in a plain chemised box.In 1906 Hachette et Cie, Paris, published two Edition DeLuxe versions of this title. There were 200 unsigned copies on 'Papier Whatman' and in addition another 20 copies that were signed by Rackham and printed on 'Papier du Japon.'Around the middle of 1904. Ernest Brown & Phillips commissioned 50 color illustrations to Rip Van Winkle, and purchased the originals and all rights for 300 guineas. The publishing rights were then resold in a complicated deal to Heinemann, before the illustrations were exhibited at Brown and Phillips' Leicester Galleries. Most of the Rip drawings were sold at the exhibition, and by October they had all found purchasers."Brown and Phillips' investment, made secure by the keenness of Rackham's purchasers, was not let down by the reviews his work received.". When, in September 1905, Rip Van Winkle was published, comparisons between Rackham and German artists [i.e. Dürer and Joseph Sattler] continued to be voiced, The Times remarking on 'the marvel of his Düreresque detail.'". The 51 illustrations, for a story of not more than five thousand words, enables the story to be told twice, once through Irving's words, and once again, image by image, through Rackham's pictures. In his illustrations, Rackham pays homage not only to Dürer, Cruikshank and Dutch seventeenth-century painting, but to contemporary artists, too." (Hamilton).". But the first work that greatly advanced his fame in the years immediately following his marriage was his edition of Rip Van Winkle This lovely book decisively established Rackham as the leading decorative illustrator of the Edwardian period. The deluxe edition of the book was fully subscribed before the [Leicester Galleries] exhibition closed" (Hudson).Riall, p. 70. Latimore and Haskell, p. 26. [Attributes: First Edition]

        A California Judge Tells His Kentucky Relatives About The Massive Earthquake: ?We Have All Been Living In A State Of Uncertainty?A Cessation Of Judicial Business For Forty Five Days Has Left The Trial Courts With Congested Dockets?My Daughter Ethel Was At Stanford University?It Suffered A Loss Of About $4,000,000 In The Destruction And Injury Of Many Fine Buildings. Two Lives Were Lost One Being That Of A Student?San Francisco Will Be Rebuilt Because Of Its Almost Matchless Harbor?

      ALS. 2pg. 8 ½? x 11?. June 7, 1906. Visalia, California. An autograph letter signed ?W.B. Wallace? on ?Superior Court Chambers? letterhead. He wrote to Mrs. Wallace M. Bartlett of Louisville, Kentucky: ?You must pardon me for the long delay in answering your letter reminding me of my promise to visit my Kentucky kinsmen this year. Since April 18th a day of disaster in this state all plans for the present year had to be re-formed and in many cases abandoned. We have all been living in a state of uncertainty. Every day since April 18th up to last Monday has been a legal holiday. It became necessary for the Governor to declare successive holidays in order that the banks throughout the state could arrange to safely resume business and that the Legislature might be convened in extra session and enact some new laws necessary to protect property rights suddenly imperiled by the great calamity that befell San Francisco and other near by places on that date. A cessation of judicial business for forty five days has left the trial courts with congested dockets rendering it necessary for most of the judges to continue holding court during the usual summer period for vacation. Unhappily I find myself in this situation and I will be unable to leave the state during his year...Fortunately none of us were injured by the great earthquake. The shock here was slight and no property was injured. My daughter Ethel was at Stanford University when it occurred. The University is about sixty miles from San Francisco. It suffered a loss of about $4,000,000 in the destruction and injury of many fine buildings. Two lives were lost one being that of a student and six other students were quite badly injured. Communication with the outside world was immediately interrupted and it was several days before we could get direct news from Ethel. She was not injured though when the shock occurred near 5 o'clock in the morning she and her companions thought the world was coming to an end when the furniture was being tossed about the room and she could see the fine structures of the university falling into shapeless masses of stone. It will be some time for our State to fully recover from the effects of so great a calamity but San Francisco will be rebuilt because of its almost matchless harbor and because it was proven that modern steel structures can stand uninjured after such an earthquake. To many of us who have known that city almost all of our lives it will not probably be the San Francisco of which we were so proud. The loss resulting from the earthquake there has been estimated at not more than $70,000,000 but the great fire with no water to stay its progress, increased the loss to thirty times that...?. The letter has mailing folds and comes with the original mailing envelope. A fine letter in the aftermath of the famous earthquake.

The most important and the scarcest of the classic Jones-Abraham trilogy, rarely found in such lovely condition. George & Ashley Abraham were pioneers of Lakeland rock exploration. They usually climbed together, George&mdash;bandy-legged but with strong hands&mdash;in the lead; he was the more patient, working out the sequence of his moves. He was punctilious about the nailing of his boots and could place the edge nails into the smallest wrinkle in the rock. He climbed for fifty years without there being any record of his falling.
