The Knave of Hearts.

Parrish, Maxfield (illus.)

NY: Scribner, 1925. Folio. 46pp. First edition. Described by Parrish's bibliographer, Coy Ludwig, as "sumptuous," this volume is considered to be the most outstanding example of the art of Parrish's book illustration. Ludwig continues that the "illustrations, printed in rich colors...were the highest quality reproductions that could be had." (Ludwig 48). Illustrations are from original paintings, twenty-six in all, including ten full-page color plates, and a magnificent sun-gilded mountain landscape, with castles, on the endpapers. A fine copy of a most important American fantasy book, in original cloth with pictorial paper label, which shows some foxing and rubbing. Item #27666

Price: $1,500.00
