(RACKHAM,ARTHUR)illus. RIP VAN WINKLE von Washington Irving. Leipzig: E.A. Seemann 1905. Large 4to (9 1/2 x 12"), Fine. The text is perfect bound in green wraps, illustrated in line. Each of the 50 incredible tipped-in color plates is mounted on a separate sheet of heavy green paper (plates have a white border). Both the text and the illustrations are housed in the original publisher's tan cloth portfolio that has lettering and an illustration in brown on the cover. Printed in Leipzig on fine laid paper. First German edition. Although not a stated limited edition and not signed, this is obviously a deluxe production. Not in Riall or Latimore/Haskell. A beautiful copy, rare.
