London, Heinemann, 1909. First Edition. First Impression. First Rackham Edition. A very good copy. A little bumping to the spine tips, pastedowns lightly foxed, one tissueguard loose with wear. All plates present. De la Motte Fouque popularised the myth of the water nymph, a being popular with the Greeks and Egyptians. Undine was influential on Andersen with his writing of The Little Mermaid, Poe was similarly influenced. Rackham, as always, presents perhaps the best illustrations for this highly-influential work of speculative fiction. Cover art / illustrations by Arthur Rackham [5480, Hyraxia Books].
