Arthur Rackham Fairy Book, 1978, consists of 23 Classic Tales illustrated with 8 color and 53 Black & White Plates.
Rackham (1867-1939), one of the greatest illustrators of any age, delights all story lovers with his special magic of color and line. Sinbad, Ali Baba, Aladdin, Rip Van Winkle and Little Red Riding Hood, among many others, live in retelling of these "old favourites of the nursery," as he called them.
This copy of Rackham's classic is in very good condition. It lacks a jacket and shows some slight foxing and shelf wear, but it is clean and unmarked. It measures 6 1/4 inches by 9 1/4 inches by 3/4 of an inch and has 271 pages.
