Finely bound deluxe copy of Rackham's illustrated Midsummer-Night's Dream.
"Rackham cast his spell over the play," notes Derek Hudson. "His drawings superseded the work of all his predecessors from Gilbert to Abbey and for fifty years have enriched the imagination...Here he excelled especially in landscape, and in reconciling dream and reality, giving himself to the luxury of rich detail with a rare generosity." A fine copy of an admirable Rackham classic, in a bespoke binding designed and executed by Chris Lewis, among Bayntun-Riviere's most talented finishers in the mid-20th century before starting his own bindery with Derek Harris.
Hudson, pp. 78 et seq.
