Grimm's Fairy Tales illustrated by Arthur Rackham is a new release from Calla Editions (part of Dover). This is a reproduction of the original 1909 release by Rackham and a great, inexpensive way to own a beautiful collection of Rackham's work with the tales. It has an October release date but is already shipping from Amazon. Dover rarely has firm pub dates and they are usually bumped later than earlier, so I am happy this one is earlier.
I haven't seen this edition in person yet--I own a few Rackham books and still want this one, for one it will smell new--but I have some of the Calla releases from last year and they are all satisfying. Yes, I have had the privilege of seeing and handling many of the first editions of these volumes. They are not up to that standard but they are better than most of the other reproductions I have seen produced during the decades since, so you can either spend thousands on a first edition or settle for one of these. And so many of those first editions are missing illustration plates, too. That always makes me sad.
And, really, Arthur Rackham is rather the Beatles of illustrators--his influence is visible in the work of so many illustrators a century later.
And here's some of the other Calla Editions that may interest the readers here:
