About this Item

8vo. quarter Morocco and Japanese cloth, slipcase. 33, 12 plates, 12 pages. Limited to 115 numbered copies. Morris' first dos-a-dos binding. Engravings and etchings (intaglios) are printed on special presses which exert the far greater pressure needed for this kind of printing. After successful experimentation in printing small intaglio plates by letterpress, Morris produced this book, with twelve plates (some as large as 5 x 6.5") printed in the same manner. A foreword and texts on the Origin of Intaglio, The Process, and background information on Heal and his book, precede the twelve engravings. From the prospectus: "These images were made from Ambrose Heal's privately published 1925 London Tradesmen's Cards of the Eighteenth Century, which showed 101 collotype prints of old engravings advertising the wares, goods and services offered about 250 years ago. I have been attracted to these "cards"-they are really papers of differing sizes-ever since I got Heal's book fifteen years ago. Thanks to my recent introduction to intaglio, I have returned twelve of these prints to their original 18th century state: you can run your finger over the print and feel the image." Bound dos-a-dos with the 16-page Schlocker & The Fishes, an account of "an unforgettable event in the early life of Henry Morris" with two full-page wood engravings by Wesley Bates. Prospectus loosely inserted. quarter Morocco and Japanese cloth, slipcase. Bookseller Inventory # 105233
