(RACKHAM,ARTHUR)illus. SPRINGTIDE OF LIFE: POEMS OF CHILDHOOD by Algernon Swinburne. London: Heinemann (1918). 4to, green gilt cloth, near Fine. 1st edition. Featuring 8 beautiful color plates and 52 black & whitess by Rackham. Laid in is a 2 page handwritten signed letter dated February 5, 1930 from Rackham to a Mr. Taylor reading: "Here are the remaining drawings for Mr. Scheuer. You will see there are 23 of them. This number is reached (instead of 16) because in several cases there was more than one drawing on the same sheet of paper and they are now separated. In two cases there were two drawings: and in one, six. The above is now my permanent home address to which all communication had better be addressed as I shall be there much more than at my London studio (where I can be, at any time, by appointment). I wish I had been able to get these drawings to you before this and I very much hope Mr. Scheuer has not been inconvenienced. I need hardly say it has not been possible to do otherwise but I am now back at work again and completely recovered from my operation."
