Here are twenty-two of the masters' most beloved stories in a deluxe anthology based on a rare 1909 edition. Twenty-one full-color paintings and twenty-eight black & white drawings created by the legendary illustrator Arthur Rackham are filled with lush settings and delightful characterizations; his startlingly beautiful and evocative artwork is every bit as powerful as when first published over one hundred years ago.
