RARE 1ST / 1ST EDITION of MR RABBIT'S SYMPHONY OF NATURE. SIGNED BY CHARLES VAN SANDWYK.A superb book, published in 2008 and signed by the author and illustrator, Charles Van Sandwyk on the front endpaper. It is a 1st Edition / 1st Printing with its original olive green wrapper with gilt title and coloured illustration of Mr Rabbit to the front. Only 2000 copies of the 1st Printings were produced, so they are quite rare, especially signed. Beautifully illustrated with 11 tipped-in watercolour plates. The book illustrates Mr Rabbit's wishes to arrange all the wonderful sounds of nature into a symphony, as he himself cannot sing.
The illustrations really are absolutely stunning and the story is delightful, written in calligraphic text - the book is a little masterpiece, Sandwyk has managed to create a world that really captures and warms the heart. It includes the original folded bookmark depicting frolicking frogs. In mint condition with absolutely no damage. It will be very carefully packaged (double boxed) and sent tracked and signed.He has also illustrated Alice's Adventures in Wonderland for them, which is also very popular. His books are highly collectable with collectors worldwide seeking the rarer limited edition items. I also have a signed press proof of Mr Rabbit's Symphony of Nature, a signed 1st Edition of Mr Rabbit's Christmas Wish, a signed 1st Edition of A Conversation with Old St Nick at the North Pole, and a 1st Edition of The Gnome King's Treasure Song - please see my other items.
