Catalogue Note

A SUMPTUOUS SET of Rackham’s edition of Wagner. Reviewing the second volume in the TLS for 4 December 1911, a reviewer noted that 'he [Rackham] revels in dwarfs and dragons and dark lairs among twisted tree-roots; and though Wagner's text in English is not very appetizing reading, the pictures will doubtless be popular'.
