Rackham, Arthur. Good. No Dust Jacket. 4to-over 9¾-12" tall. pp. 181. This volume features 25 beautiful color plates by Arthur Rackham. Translated by Margaret Armour, this is Wagner's text for Siegfried and Gotterdammerung (The Twilight of the Gods), the final two operas in the Ring cycle. The labeling of the series as a Trilogy, instead of the now common Quadrology, with a prelude suggests Das Rhinegold was considered a prelude to Die Walkure (The Valkyries).
