Signed limited edition, one of only 460 copies signed by Rackham, accompanied by the original drawing that appears on page 78 of the text.
Rackham had a special talent for creating fantastical creatures like fairies and goblins, making PEER GYNT an excellent choice for his interpretations. Laid into this copy is a gorgeous original pen-and-ink drawing featuring a bevy of weird and wonderful goblins in motion. The drawing is actually larger than the printed version, measuring 5.5'' x 5''. Already a scarce Rackham deluxe edition, it is especially desirable with the drawing.

Pictorial endpapers. lllustrated by Rackham with 12 color plates, plus numerous fanciful black-and-white images. 256,  pages. Original drawing with faint pencil annotations laid in. Signed by Rackham on the limitation page. Natural faint spotting to vellum, with absolutely no bowing: beautifully preserved.
