Dent of London contained illustrations by Arthur Rackham. A man of some property in Kent, a minor canon of St. Troy tells about coming across Lord Tomnoddy and the hanging and the 'extraordinary impression' it had on her. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham A.

Later in the novel he quotes a poem that he attributes incorrectly to The Ingoldsby Legends, its actual source being Sir Walter Scott 's epic poem Marmion. He's retiring after 30 years of teaching service, and I want you to know that this means a lot to us because it will be a very treasured parting gesture to him. These Legends have often been imitated, but never equalled. His writing grew quite popular, first appearing in periodicals, newspapers, and books, beginning in Lane. Project Gutenberg believes the Court has no jurisdiction over the matter, but until the issue is resolved, it will comply.

When I compared this edition to a later publication of Ingoldsby Legends also illustrated by Rackham, the only truly evident difference in respect to the illustrations was the slight variance in the tinting hues produced in which the drawings appeared to be lighter in color in the publication. This method of printing was considered quite advanced in the early 20th century, making the edition even more desirable for readers to purchase. Dent and Co. Pictorial endpapers. Kentish folk band Los Salvadores song Smugglers' Leap is based on the story of the same name featured in the Ingoldsby Legends. Anning Bell and two others, both flaps blank.

Ingoldsby legends; or, Mirth and Marvels. book

Long out of print, it is now available in a fully annotated two-volume edition, complete with over a hundred illustrations by John Tenniel, George Cruikshank, George Du Maurier, John Leech, Arthur Rackham and others.

The somewhat grotesque quality of Rackham's figures are perfectly suited for the metrical myths, legends, and ghost stories written by Richard Harris Barhaman English clergyman who is best known by his pen name Thomas Ingoldsby.

I also found that a few titles of specific stories have a much looser and fluid appearance, sometimes being a part of an illustration that introduces a shorter piece. With these features, especially the gilt engravings and high-quality illustrations, I speculate that this book was produced to look exclusive and costly but in reality, due to its untrimmed side and bottom edges along with the bare minimum gluing of the pictures to their green pages, it was most likely less expensive in order to be an affordable piece for a larger audience.

All IP addresses in Germany are blocked. Upon a closer examination of the illustrations using a 10x magnifying lens, I discovered that the overall picture was actually the product of varying patterns of extremely small and exact dots. The pages are trimmed and thinly covered with gilt on the top edge of the book but the side and bottom edges are untrimmed and have no gilt covering.

Pictorial endpapers. Bleilerp. This book has met with a very satisfactory reception, but the publisher's have felt with me that, with the addition of new drawings, a careful overhauling would make it worthy of publication in a more important form, in which greater prominence could be given to the illustrations by better and larger reproductions, including a greater number of illustrations in colour.

Mild wear, spine mildly sunned, but still an excellent copy in a later tan pictorial dust jacket printed in black. He was ordained a minister in and he became an exemplary clergyman who was quite devoted to his faith, but is best known for these legends that he composed.

Original green cloth stamped in gilt. His writing grew quite popular, first appearing in periodicals, newspapers, and books, beginning in Lane.

Valid bid!

British illustrator Arthur Rackham is credited with renewing interest in book illustration at a vital moment of advances in printing technology. Pictorial endpapers. By Chaucer was a page to the wife of Prince Lionel, second son of Edward III, and it was while in the prince's service that Chaucer was ransomed when captured during the English campaign in France in Not only did he adapt the Gallic spirit and conte to the exigencies of the English language: his blending of saints and demons, ghosts and abbots, monkish legend and romance, antiquarian lore and classical knowledge, murder and crime, with his own freakish and whimsical sense of humour, his lightning leaps from grave to gay, his quaint verbal quips, his wealth of topical allusion and most bizarre rhymes - all combined to secure him immediate attention and resultant fame.
