9780393057744: The Annotated Wind in the Willows (The Annotated Books)

To celebrate The Wind in the Willows, scholar Annie Gauger offers this beautifully illustrated edition of Kenneth Grahame’s classic―complete with rare photographs of the Grahames, their friends, and illustrations from the first five editions.

“Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing―absolutely nothing―half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.”―the Water Rat to the Mole

An instant bestseller upon its initial publication in 1908, The Wind in the Willows has become one of the beloved stories of all time. How could Ratty and Mole have known when they took to the river over one hundred years ago that they would begin a phenomenon that would produce one of the most oft-quoted lines in British literature, and inspire everyone from the creator of Winnie-the-Pooh to Pink Floyd? Drawing from more than a decade of research, Annie Gauger, one of the world’s leading experts on Kenneth Grahame and The Wind in the Willows, now presents a fascinating new annotated edition that reintroduces readers to Otter, curmudgeonly Badger, and rollicking, boastful Toad, while revealing the secrets behind this treasured classic.

In The Annotated Wind in the Willows, readers will discover the sheer joy of the original text, restored to the original 1908 version, illustrated with hundreds of full-color images―including the beloved drawings by E. H. Shepard and Arthur Rackham. This edition also includes Shepard’s famous map of the Wild Wood and rarely seen images by illustrators Graham Robertson, Paul Bransom, Nancy Barnhart, and Wyndham Payne.

In an illuminating preface, Gauger explains how Grahame came to write the novel, which began as a bedtime story and then became a series of letters he wrote to his son, Alastair. This edition reproduces the original letters in their entirety and includes nearly a thousand delightful annotations on everything from automobiles (Toad drove an Armstrong Hardcastle Special Eight) and early motorcar etiquette to modern manifestations (Disneyland’s Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride). She reveals how William John Cavendish Bentinck-Scott, the peculiar Fifth Duke of Portland, built an extensive network of underground tunnels, thus inspiring the character of Badger, and she puts Grahame’s work in literary context, comparing him to Dickens, Rudyard Kipling, A. A. Milne, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Finally, new to this edition, long buried in the Kenneth Grahame papers, are the notes, letters, and writings by Alastair Grahame and his governess, including several pieces by Kenneth Grahame himself that have never been published before.

With a stunning, lyrical tribute to Grahame by Brian Jacques, the internationally best-selling author of the Redwall series, The Annotated Wind in the Willows should prove a most beautiful and enduring tribute to Grahame’s masterpiece. 182 illustrations, color throughout

From the Back Cover:

The authoritative edition of this classic work―now with millions of copies in print all over the world―published to honor the author’s 150th birthday.

With a stirring introduction by Brian Jacques, the internationally best-selling author of the Redwall Series.

“The tradition that Martin Gardner began with The Annotated Alice has been splendidly upheld by Annie Gauger. What Gardner did for Lewis Carroll, Gauger has done in spades for Kenneth Grahame, in a sumptuously produced volume that’s a delight to handle as well as read. The background information on display really dazzles: I only wish I’d had this book to consult when writing Grahame’s biography.”―Peter Green, author of Kenneth Grahame, 1859–1932: A Study of His Life, Work, and Times
Classic praise for The Wind in the Willows

“Destined to be one of those dog-eared volumes which one laughs over and loves.”―The New York Times, 1908

“I have read it and re-read it, and have come to accept the characters as old friends. . . . Indeed, I feel very much about going to Africa as the seafaring rat did when he almost made the water-rat wish to forsake everything and start wandering!”―President Theodore Roosevelt to Kenneth Grahame, 1909

“It is what I call a Household Book . . . a book which everybody in the household loves, and quotes continually ever afterwards; a book which is read aloud to every new guest.”―A. A. Milne, 1920

“I rank [The Wind in the Willows] very high in its class―up in the region of Alice in Wonderland almost―and much higher than the efforts of Mickey Mouse.”―E. M. Forster, 1942

“Consider Mr. Badger in The Wind in the Willows―that extraordinary amalgam of high rank, course manners, gruffness, shyness, and goodness. The child who has once met Mr. Badger has ever afterwards in its bones a knowledge of humanity and of English social history which it could not get in any other way.”―C. S. Lewis, 1950

The Annotated Wind in the Willows includes:

  • The complete text of the original letters that inspired the novel
  • Hundreds of full-color illustrations, many rare and previously unpublished
  • Thousands of annotations on the historical and literary context of the novel
  • Dozens of previously unpublished documents: letters, lists, and other Grahame artifacts
  • A selection of critical responses upon first release, including the complete text of many of the early reviews
