"Arthur Rackham was selected as the subject for this study because of the writer's interest in his unique drawings and because of a feeling that others may find of some use a paper which treats of the artist of fairyland. The attempt has been made to assemble from the writings of Rackham's contemporaries and his modern critics representative reviews, opinions and reactions to the illustrations for children's books. Since many of the books Rackham illustrated were reprints, the critics were influenced by previous illustrators and in such writings are found the best comparisons of Rackham's work to that of other artists"--Introduction.
