About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for The Heroes, or Greek Fairy Tales for My Children by Kingsley, Charles.

Description:

Small quarto. xvii, 113pp. From an edition of 512 copies, this is number two of twelve printed on vellum. Illustrated with twelve mounted color plates by Sir William Russell Flint. These reproductions of watercolor paintings were originally grouped together at the back of the book, but were distributed throughout the text in their relevant places when it was rebound. Together with an additional portfolio of twelve duplicate plates. The text was written by Charles Kingsley, who tells the tales of Perseus, the Argonauts, and Theseus, for "there are no fairy tales like these old Greek ones, for beauty, and wisdom, and truth, and for making children love noble deeds, and trust in God to help them through."This volume features a designer binding by Lester Capon. Trained in the art of bookbinding by James Brockman, Capon is known for employing traditional bookbinding methods and materials within a modern context. Bound in green goatskin, with multi-colored and hand-stained leather and paper inlays and gold tooling. At the center of the spine extending over both covers is a circular design filled with small curved gold lines and dots and multicolor circular inlays; at the center, like the boss of a shield, the gilt title rests on a red circle. In the background, inlays and gold tooling resemble a field of stars and planets, and undulating navy lines run lengthwise across both covers. Capon says of the design: "The central massing of gold and coloured inlays is mainly based on shields, but I don't do 'literal' or illustration, so it's invented and imagined. Or it could be the sun! - the presence of ancient gods is prevalent and relevant, which is why, also, the hand stained inlays are suggestive of the heavens." Sewn silk endbands, orange Finnish reindeer suede doublures, and Ingres endpapers in harvest gold and merlot finish this finely executed binding. T.e.g. Housed in felt-lined, cloth drop-back box in gray-blue with restraining wedge and a separate compartment for the cloth folder containing the additional plates. Extremely fine.
