Description

Arthur Rackham was the first artist approached to illustrate Kenneth Grahame’s masterpiece about Mole, Rat, Toad and Badger and their adventures on the riverbank, but was too busy at the time. When he was contracted by the Limited Editions Club, he was already mortally ill and it was his last commission. This is the only edition with all sixteen of Rackham’s plates.
