About this Item

Series: Publication of the Book Club of California, No. 160. LIMITED EDITION of 500 copies printed at the Cambridge University Press with color plates printed at the Curwen Press, London, typographical design by John Dreyfus. Folio. 14 3/4 x 9 3/4 inches. (viii), (104) pp. 16 color plates including the frontispiece, chapter heads within decorative borders, index; text clean, un-marked. Quarter red cloth, specially commissioned Cockerell marbled paper over boards, gilt-titled spine, plain paper dust-jacket; binding square and tight, edges foxed, dust-jacket spine toned, jacket soiled. Includes two copies of the prospectus, both of which have a loose copy of the last plate from the text. Good. The first book produced entirely in England for the Book Club of California. Aquatint began in the last quarter of the eighteenth century and flourished for about six decades before giving way to lithography. Aquatint imitates water-color drawing and is perhaps the most beautiful form of book illustration. This book is the first treatment as a form of literature of the books that contain aquatint illustrations. Bookseller Inventory # MC2-59
