About this Item

Folio (12-3/4" x 16-1/2") bound in goatskin leather dyed grey-green to evoke the Yorkshire moors and housed in a cloth slipcase with leather spine label. Illustrated with 15 drawings by the artist Balthus which were begun in 1933 when he was 25 for an edition of WUTHERING HEIGHTS that did not materialize. Balthus, in his eighties, agreed to have the entire suite presented for the first time if the publication was strictly limited. The drawings were turned into lithographs and printed on fine Japanese paper and then mounted on mould-made paper from France uniquely watermarked with the coat of arms of Balthus's family: Klossowski de Rola. Copy #5 of only 300 copies SIGNED by the artist and with an afterword by him as well. Monthly Letter laid in. Fine in a Fine clamshell box, as issued. Bookseller Inventory # 017281
