About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Epithalamion. A Poem by Graves, Ida.

Description:

Tall quarto. (51)pp. From an edition of 330 copies, this is one of 280 on Basingwerk Parchment. Each of the twenty-three stanzas of the poem is illustrated with a full-page wood-engraving by Hughes-Stanton, who was typical of most of the English wood engravers of his day in that he preferred deep black prints from the blocks. He was among the most technically accomplished artists of his time, creating "engravings so fine that it is hard to believe they are wood." He revived the use of the multiple tool which engraves several parallel lines simultaneously. This produces a variety of textures seldom achieved by others. The first of only two books printed under Hughes-Stanton's own Gemini Press imprint, this is the Basilisk Press reissue of the unsold copies from the 1934 printing, of which more than half the edition remained in sheets. Hughes-Stanton signed the colophon page in graphite, and there is an additional booklet included in the slipcase that provides background on the establishment of the Gemini Press, the printing of this particular title, and a bibliography of Hughes-Stanton's work. Extremely fine in a binding by Paul Collet and David Sellars of brown morocco-trimmed boards and brown morocco lettering piece, housed in a board slipcase.
