    Arthur Rackham - 1909 Limited Signed Edition of "Gulliver's Travels" Into Several Remote Nations Of The World by Jonathan Swift. Arthur Rackham was one of the best known artists who illustrated books during the era known as the "Golden Age" of illustration between 1870 and 1930. Published in New York by E. P. Dutton & Company in 1909. This is copy #571 of an edition of 750 and is signed by Rackham. Illustrated with 13 tipped-in color plates as well as a number of B&W headpieces and tailpieces. Rackham also designed the endpapers.
