What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Illustrated, Limited Edition, Pleasing Copy, Publishers' Original Binding, Signed

This copy is number 99 of the twelve hundred and fifty copies printed on japon vellum for the Nonesuch Press. The Nonesuch Press specialised in limited edition and private press. They were founded by Francis Meynell, his second wife Vera Mendel and their friend David Garnett. Their aspiration was for their publications to be aligned with the same aesthetic standards as the private press movement. They were unusual as they used a small Albion press to design the books, but had them printed by commercial printers. In doing so, books with the quality of a fine-press were produced, but available to a wider audience at lower prices. This copy features a charming copper-plate engraving, designed and engraved by the renowned English artist, engraver and illustrator Stephen Gooden. This copy is lacking the original dustwrapper.
