About this Item

Original woodblock by artist Sarah Chamberlain showing a group of butterflies in flight -- the first of ten illustrations from The Butterfly's Ball and the Grasshopper's Feast. This is not only the first miniature book published by Anne and David Bromer, but also Chamberlain's first miniature book commission. Chamberlain's engraved blocks never come on the market, and the present example has been in Anne Bromer's possession for many years. Accompanied by a letterpress broadside, published in an edition of 100 copies, printed for friends of the Chamberlain Press and Bromer Booksellers in celebration of the book's publication, as well as a smaller sheet with the book's title in red. Extremely fine. (Bromer, pp. 11-16). Bookseller Inventory # 25883
