London: Constable & Co., Ltd, 1917. 4to, 251pp. 12 tipped in color plates, 43 black and white illustrations. Original green cloth boards with gilt title and vignettes to upper board and spine, in a later slipcase. Very good. First grade edition. This was one of Rackham’s most successful books, mixing black-and-white vignettes of great charm and subtlety with color plates that are vintage Rackham. “It was during these years that he illustrated a new Brothers Grimm title, Little Brother and Little Sister which is in effect one of his crowning achievements... This is one of the few books illustrated by Rackham from which it would be possible to select any single-colour picture in order to demonstrate Rackham's art at its finest." (Gettings, Arthur Rackham, pp. 116-117). Lattimore and Haskell, p. 46. (Item Id: 109948)
