The Ring of the Niblung with Illustrations by Arthur Rackham.

£19.99

Product description

Arthur Rackham's illustrated edition of 'The Ring of the Niblung' by Richard Wagner appeared first in two volumes in 1910 and 1911 and were an immediate success. In 1976, on the centenary of the year of the first performance of Wagner's cycle, the books have been reissued in this one splendid volume, complete with Rackham's 30 illustration plates.

The book itself is attractively produced with green cloth boards, gilt titles, and a gilt illustration on the front. It is in very good plus condition; the upper spine end is bumped and there is a small nick to the lower rear cover edge; the upper text block edge has some light foxing speckles. Inside pages are clean and bright. The jacket has light general handling marks and has suffered some bumping wear to the upper spine end, with two closed tears, up to approx. 1cm; corners, edges and flap folds have rubbing wear, and edges have some light creasing.
