The Night Before Christmas
Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. SIGNED LIMITED DELUXE FIRST EDITION, number 20 of only 275 copies of the US issue (an additional 275 copies were issued in the UK). Signed by Arthur Rackham and illustrated with four color plates and additional illustrations on every page. "Rackham brought a renewed sense of excitement to book illustration that coincided with the rapid developments in printing technology in the early twentieth century. Working with subtle colour and wiry line, he exploited the growing strengths of commercial printing to create imagery and characterizations that reinvigorated children's literature, electrified young readers, and dominated the art of book illustration at the start of a new century" (Dictionary of National Biography). Philadelphia: J.P. Lippincott, 1931. Thin octavo (approx 9x6 in), original limp vellum gilt, top edge gilt, original slipcase. Rear corner a little bumped, otherwise fine. Slipcase with some soiling and small crack at joint. An exquisite production.
