This copy is very similar to the Freemantle & Co., London, 1900 copy illustrated by Rackham. A remarkably bright copy of the first edition to be illustrated by Rackham, predating the revised edition published by Constable in 1909. xvii, [1], 464 pages, colour frontispiece and title page, illustrations. This copy also predates the Doubleday 1909 First American illustrated by Rackham. We aren't sure whether THE OLD CORNER BOOK STORE did a knock off or what for this 1904 or what, hence the inflated price which is still comparable to the 1900 Fremantle copies!! COMPETITIVE PRICING!
