London: Methuen and Co., 1951. 4to, xii, 178 pp. With 12 mounted colour plates and numerous black and white illustrations. Full white pigskin, lettered in gilt on backstrip, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, backstrip a little dried and joints showing wear, internally perfect, in a cloth case. 100th Edition, deluxe issue, limited to 500 copies printed on handmade paper and bound in full white pigskin. An appropriate celebration of the 100th edition of this children’s classic, first printed in 1908. While E.H.Shepard’s illustrations are widely known, Rackham’s distinctive take on the adventures of Mole, Ratty and Mr Toad is just as successful and utterly endearing. (Item Id: 107929)
