New York / London: Doubleday, Page & Co. / William Heinemann, 1908. First US trade edition. Original moss-green cloth and decorative boards with embossed gilt title and design, quarto (7.5 x 10 inches), 134 pp. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham; 40 tipped-in color plates with tissue guards, 34 line drawings. Top edge gilt. Spine bears the imprint of Doubleday, Page & Co. Corners and edges of covers rubbed, a couple areas on front cover faintly discolored, tissue guard for plate at p. 32 with short tear at top, else very good. Item #23365
Published the same year in a signed limited edition. Truly one of Rackham's masterpieces; he captures the essence of Shakespeare's fantastic characters superbly. Handsome publisher's binding - rather more inspired than that of the UK trade edition.
