About this Item

2 Parts in 1 [continuous pagination]. pp. 119, [1]blank], [title leaf], 123-182, [7]index. with half-title. titles in red & black. 10 hand-coloured etchings by Clara Tice. tissue guards with legends. contemporary full dark red morocco, front cover & spine decorated with 3 gilt-stamped nudes after designs by Tice, t.e.g., others uncut (a few gatherings roughly opened, lower edge of 1 plate bit tatty). First Edition with Illustrations by Clara Tice [1888-1973], Limited to 1000 copies, this one of 250 on deckle-edge Pannekoek paper (copy unnumbered). This is an exact reprint of the earliest English text, printed in Holland by the firm of Johann Enschedé En Zonen of Haarlem, which was founded in 1703. It was entirely set by hand from type cast by the Dutch printing firm from original Didot matrices. Clara Tice was famous for her bohemian dress and lifestyle, her dadaist affiliation and her nudes. In 1915, Tice "became an overnight sensation" when one of her early exhibitions, at Polly’s Restaurant in Greenwich Village, drew the venom of anti-vice crusader Anthony Comstock. Tice was later to remark that Comstock "was some press agent". Frank Crowninshield, editor of Vanity Fair magazine, where Tice was later employed for a brief period as a staff artist, published photographs of Tice’s nudes and announced a mock trial to be held in her defence, to which the public was invited to act as the plaintiff’s attorney, witness, jury, and judge. "She will be tried and therefore acquitted of the charges of having committed unspeakable, black atrocities on white paper, abusing slender bodies of girls, cats, peacocks and butterflies." (Naumann, New York Dada 1915-23, pp. 117-20). Bookseller Inventory # ILTndVOL11
