Original Book Plate 1908 Arthur Rackham "mortals" Faries A Midsummer Night Dream

Original Arthur Rackham Print 1908

Entitled

Lord, what fools these mortals be!

Act3 Scene 2

Comments: Original full color antique print from "A Midsummer Night's Dream" by William Shakespeare, with fantastic illustrations by Arthur Rackham. Image is "tipped onto" backing paper, as issued, and is an excellent example of the work of this great illustrator.

Arthur Rackham was born into a middle-class family in Lambeth, London, on September 19, 1867, to Alfred Thomas Rackham (1829-1912), a legal clerk, and Anne Stevenson (1833-1920), the daughter of a draper. From his earliest moments, Rackham was a prolific and dedicated artist, smuggling pencils into bed with him at night and later drawing on his pillows. Arthur Rackham died at Stilegate on September 6, 1939, a few days before his seventy-second birthday. While his obituary in the Times described him as "one of the most eminent book illustrators of his day," a more personal memorial appears in a comment made by his daughter, Barbara Edwards: "To do his job well and give pleasure to as many people as possible was his ambition."

Condition:Thisprint is in mint condition and photos are of the a scanned image and doesn't do the print justice (the backing paper is actually a consistent tan tone between all prints in this series), unmatted and unframed. I have posted and will supply a copy of the title page of the book it was taken from. This is not a reproduction and is over 100 years old. The photos are from a scan of the print, it is 7 in x 5 in and on the original backing from the book allowing you to use it as you want in your collection.
