Autograph Letter Signed ("Arthur Rackham") to "My dear Heronbrand", 1 page 8vo, Stilegate, Limpsfield, Surrey, 3 May 1937.

Saying "I sent off Barbara's [his daughter's] M.S. to you some days ago. I should like to hear if you got it - I did not register it - though no doubt it would have been wiser."Rackham was most celebrated as the illustrator of such childrens' classics as Grimms' Fairy Tales and Washington Irving's Rip Van Winkle. His style, angular and full of stylised Gothic detail, can be deliciously frightening.
