London Rare Books

20th century UK first editions mainly in literature, with some philosophy, travel and 19th century literature.



1st and only printing of this numbered limited edition of which there were just 1000 - this is one of the 900 printed on Japon Vellum paper and bound in linen buckram, namely, number 801 - still fresh and bright with Homeric bow by Eric Gill to front board and titles to spine in gilt with just a little fading at edges mainly at spine ends. Internally clean with no inscriptions; scripted copy number at dedicated limited edition page after title page. The binding remains sound, tight and square.. The unclipped and original dustjacket is complete and has benefitted from some very limited restoration occasionally at edges; some minor creasing to rear panel. A very nice example in scarce dustjacket.
