Brief Details Of This Book:

 

The Peradventures of Private Pagett is a scarce early Arthur Rackham illustrated book, published just 5 years after he illustrated Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens. This is a very collectable Arthur Rackham illustrated book.

 


Condition of the Binding:

 

The original red binding has a wonderful illustration by Arthur Rackham. The binding is in Very Good + condition being exceptionally attractive with slight fading to the spine, a small mark to the top of the spine, knocks to the top and bottom of the spine, and remarkably incredibly light knocks to the corners of this early Arthur Rackham illustrated book.

 

 

Condition of the Pages:

 

There are 242 numbered pages with 8 Arthur Rackham black and white illustrations that are present as per the “List of Illustrations” to the front of the book. The pages are in Good condition being complete, firmly bound-in into the binding, but with medium spotting throughout the book, some pages worse than others. However, this is to the text pages and the Arthur Rackham illustrations are on better quality paper, thus have been unaffected by the spotting.
