London: William Heinemann, 1926. 1/4 Vellum. Very Good. Arthur Rackham. The 1926 signed/limited. 520 copies issued by William Heinemann and signed by the illustrator Arthur Rackham (the first 260 intended for the British audience, the second 260 copies intended for The States). THIS, COPY #41, IS SIGNED BY ARTHUR RACKHAM at the limitation. A solid copy to boot. Tight and VG in its vellum-backed cream boards, with bright gilt-insignia and titling along the front panel and spine. Light staining at the foot of the spine, which bleeds just a bit onto the lower-edges of the first dozen or so pages. Thick quarto, top-edge gilt, deckled fore and bottom-edges. A number of pages uncut, all of Rackham's 21 tipped-in, full-page plates in pristine condition.
