Ingoldsby, Thomas; Rackham, Arthur
J.M. Dent, London, 1907. Updated and expanded edition with Rackham's illustrations, first published in 1898 but here published in a new deluxe format with new work by Rackham. In the preface, Rackham notes in part the changes he made for this new edition: "The frontispiece and the coloured illustration facing page 508 have been specially drawn, and all the other illustrations in colour have been worked on to a considerable extent, and specially coloured for this edition. A few illustrations in the earlier edition have been omitted, and in their place have been added [new illustrations]." A beautiful book of what is generally considered the "best" Rackham edition. 10'' x 7.5''. Original gilt-stamped pictorial cloth. Pictorial endpapers, top edge gilt, other edges uncut. Illustrated by Rackham with 24 mounted color plates, 12 full-page tinted illustrations, and 66 black-and-white images. xx, 549, [1] pages. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Type Punch Matrix [Silver Spring, MD, U.S.A.]
