Signed limited edition of Ibsen's fantasy play of goblins and fairies based upon a traditional Norwegian fairy tale, one of only 460 copies signed by Rackham.
Very good plus.
Rackham had a particular talent for creating fantastical creatures like fairies and goblins, making PEER GYNT an excellent choice for his interpretations. This is one of the more scarce Rackham limited editions.
