First edition, first printing with these illustrations. Publisher's original black cloth with gilt titles to the upper board and spine. Yellow top-stain. With 20 tipped in colour plates and 25 additional back and white illustrations throughout the text by Arthur Rackham. A lovely near fine copy, the binding square and firm with a little bumping and rubbing at the spine tips, the cloth fresh and the gilt bright. The contents are clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps.

A lovely example of the first Arthur Rackham illustrated edition of William Shakespeare's The Tempest.
