The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent shape, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

Since the turn of the century, generations of readers have been brought up on and have continued to treasure the many books which Arthur Rackham illustrated. The extraordinary popularity of this leading decorative illustrator of the Edwardian period in England has brought about the present book, which brings together a group of classic texts, all of which are accompanied by illustrations Arthur Rackham made during the best period of his work.

Beyond the stories contained in this volume, a brief sketch and appreciation of the artist by Margery Darrell is included as an introduction to this delightful book, which is designed not only for avid Rackham fans, but as a popular addition to every home library.
