Item Description: The Bibliophile Society, Boston, 1912. light Brown w Gilt Titles. Book Condition: Near Fiine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine (slipcase). Limited Edition. This 23 page masterwork, one of 469 copies, being an increasingly well respected and energetically applauded offering it is proudly presented with great and well deserved hubris by Hirschfeld Galleries in BOTH the publishers original binding and original dustwrapper. The binding is full caramel-colored leather with gilt decoartion and titling. And this baby is rock solid, tight and clean, AAA all the way. The publisher's original slipcase is also AA, being quarter brown on yellow boards. Inside is an etched title-page, signed by A. N. Macdonald, and an etching and five etched portraits signed in pencil by W. H. W. Bicknell., 1912. Printed on Japan vellum paper. The etched illustrations in this volume are all by W. H. W. Bicknell, after original drawings by himself. They have never been otherwise reproduced. The copper plates have been destroyed. Alas, when all is said and done and the proverbial geese have come home to nest or roost, or whatever, and you're ready to decide to invest some of your hard-earned cash in this lofty offering, please consider that this book does indeed have the four absolute uppermost qualities we at Hirschfeld Galleries since 1931 have always sought, and demanded, in books: 1) excellence in content, 2) literary quality, 3) appealing design, and 4) significance of contribution. Another great altruistic offering opportunity for us and an even greater opportunity for self-actualized reception on your part. But enough of the lugubrious however allegorically wise jaw-jacking, enough said of the telluric parameters of select Hirschfeld Galleries' offerings such as this one which take on a life of their own and speak so very loudly for themselves. Read to learn and enjoy; go forth to share and enjoin. Research, analysis, dissertation, lucubrations or just enjoyment, this is the one. ACTUAL BOOK FOR SALE PICTURED. PLEASE DOUBLE CLICK ON IMAGE TO ENLARGE. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. By Artists. Poetic Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 007090
