About this Item: Folio Society, London, 2008. Hardback. Condition: Fine. First Thus. 2008 First Thus. Fine Hardback. No inscriptions or bookplates. Near Fine slipcase. Slight marks to panels of slipcase. Slipcased Letterpress edition. Numbered copy of 3750 numbered copies of which this is number 60. A Letterpress edition of Shakespeare's play, created with the highest quality materials and craftsmanship. Quarter-bound in goatskin leather, blocked in gold with hand-marbled paper sides; gilded top edge and ribbon marker. Set in 16pt 'Monotype' Baskerville, printed by letterpress on mould-made paper. Letterpress volume: 14" x 10¾". A pleasure to read Shakespeare's glorious language lies at the heart of his plays and here, free from the clutter of notes, every line is given the appropriate space to breathe. The text is printed by letterpress, a method now used only for the very finest private press publishing. Meticulously set on a traditional monotype machine, rather than a computer, the type letters have been individually created from hot metal in the rarely used 16-point font of 'Monotype' Baskerville. The shape of each line, and the arrangement of lines on the page, are adjusted by hand to create the most pleasing overall effect for the reader. The layout of words on a printed page is as much an art as such ancient techniques as Chinese or Arabic calligraphy. Here, the text is designed by eye and set on a manual machine, not a computer. Each letter of type has been created from hot metal in the rarely used 16-point font of 'Monotype' Baskerville, chosen for its clarity and elegance of form. Tiny irregularities testify to the hand-crafted nature of the process, since the shape of each line, the very gap between letters, is adjusted by hand to create the most pleasing overall effect. A book is a pleasure of many senses: the feel of it in the hands, even the smell of the leather and ink all contribute to the enjoyment. Running your fingers over the paper, the difference between letterpress and litho printing is instantly discernable. You can feel the indentation where each letter has been impressed into the mould-made paper. This high quality paper is made from cotton rags and wood fibres dried on a cylindrical mould which produces the feathered edge known as the 'deckle'. The quarter-binding is of finest goatskin leather, dyed to a rich colour. The pattern on the hand-marbled paper sides is unique to each volume. The craftsmen and women who work on these volumes are rightly proud of their involvement in the project. From the hand-sewing of the pages to the blocking of each label in 24-carat gold, few books have had such care lavished on them. You can be confident that these exceptional editions will give pleasure for generations to come. Unmatched in comedy and tragedy, poetry and prose, Shakespeare's plays are the crowning jewel of the English language. The creation of beautiful reading editions worthy of their stature is a dream that all lovers of his works will understand – a dream realised in The Folio Society's Letterpress Shakespeare series. Here, Shakespeare's words are given the space and setting they deserve. The meticulously designed pages and the clear and elegant type entice the eye to read, whilst the leather quarterbindings, gilded top edges and hand-marbled paper sides make these volumes a pleasure to look at and a delight to own.

About this Item: Folio Society, London, 2015. Hardback. Condition: Fine. David Gentleman (illustrator). First Thus. 2015 First Thus. Fine Hardback. No inscriptions or bookplates. Fine slipcase. A new limited edition to commemorate the poet's death in April 1917. Published in series with Rupert Brooke: Selected Poems and designed to emulate the fine press editions of the early 20th century. Introduced by Andrew Motion. With original lithographs by David Gentleman. Limited to 1,250 numbered copies each signed by David Gentleman, of which this is number ****1104. Long regarded as a 'poet's poet', Edward Thomas is now acknowledged as one of the greatest writers of the English countryside, his verse grounded in a pastoral patriotism that makes him unique among the poets of the First World War. Born in Lambeth, London, in 1878, Thomas studied at Lincoln College, Oxford, before moving in 1901 to Kent and later Hampshire with his wife, Helen. An admirer of Richard Jefferies, he began writing topographical prose whilst still at school, but financial pressures would later force him to lay aside his literary ambitions to pursue the 'painful business' of reviewing and writing books on commission. A gifted critic, particularly of poetry, Thomas was quick to praise the brilliance of W. H. Davies, Ezra Pound and Robert Frost. It was Frost, whom Thomas met in 1913, who first recognised the latent poetry in Thomas's nature writing, and urged him to try his hand at verse. The result was spectacular. Frost had opened a floodgate of creativity, and in less than three years Thomas wrote no fewer than 144 poems of extraordinary maturity of style and lyrical intensity. He joined the Artists Rifles in July 1915, his anti-nationalism finally overcome by a need to protect the land he loved and by reading ‘The Road Not Taken’, a poem Frost wrote about him. Thomas was killed on the first day of the Battle of Arras, Easter Monday 1917, while the first edition of his Poems was being prepared for press. Limited to 1250 numbered copies each signed by David Gentleman. 9 original lithographs and 9 letterpress vignettes by David Gentleman, printed by Curwen Studio. Introduced by Andrew Motion.

About this Item: Folio Society, London, 2015. Hardback. Condition: Fine. Ed Kluz (illustrator). First Thus. 2015 First Thus. Fine Hardback. No inscriptions or bookplates. Fine slipcase. 118 pages. 9¾" x 7". 9 original lithographs and 6 letterpress vignettes by Ed Kluz, printed by Curwen Studios. Typeset in Monotype Walbaum by Stan Lane at Gloucester Typesetting Services and printed letterpress at The Stonehouse Fine Press. Printed on Zerkall mould-made smooth paper with Freelife Merida endpapers. Bound in Vicenza by LEGO, with paste-paper sides by Victoria Hall. Slipcase covered in Freelife Merida, blocked on one side, with a lithograph label. A selection of Rupert Brooke’s most famous poems, presented in a special limited edition to mark the centenary of his death. The book has been designed to reflect the values of the fine press movement of the early 20th century: the text is printed letterpress, illustrated with original lithographs and bound in leather with handmade paste-paper sides. Brooke is famous both for his evocation of Edwardian England in poems such as ‘The Old Vicarage, Grantchester’ and for the wide-eyed patriotism of his later poems that herald the coming conflict. He died aged 27, before this illusion of a just and heroic war was completely shattered, although his final poem suggests that he may have begun to reconsider his idealistic stance. This edition contains superb new lithographs that capture the vitality and beauty of his verse. Like so many others of his time, Rupert Brooke did not live to reach his full potential, but his haunting, often prescient poems testify to his dazzling command of words and the depth of his imagination. Limited to 1,750 numbered copies of which this is number 252. UK Postage £3.10; Airmail to Europe £6.00; Airmail to Rest of the World £11.00.

About this Item: Folio Society, London, 2008. Hardback. Condition: Fine. First Thus. 2008 First Thus. Fine Hardback. No inscriptions or bookplates. Fine solander box . Letterpress edition in a solander box Limited Edition of 3750 numbered copies of which this is number 249. A Letterpress edition of Shakespeare's play, created with the highest quality materials and craftsmanship. Quarter-bound in goatskin leather, blocked in gold with hand-marbled paper sides; gilded top edge and ribbon marker. Set in 16pt 'Monotype' Baskerville, printed by letterpress on mould-made paper. Letterpress volume: 14" x 10¾". A pleasure to read Shakespeare's glorious language lies at the heart of his plays and here, free from the clutter of notes, every line is given the appropriate space to breathe. The text is printed by letterpress, a method now used only for the very finest private press publishing. Meticulously set on a traditional monotype machine, rather than a computer, the type letters have been individually created from hot metal in the rarely used 16-point font of 'Monotype' Baskerville. The shape of each line, and the arrangement of lines on the page, are adjusted by hand to create the most pleasing overall effect for the reader. The layout of words on a printed page is as much an art as such ancient techniques as Chinese or Arabic calligraphy. Here, the text is designed by eye and set on a manual machine, not a computer. Each letter of type has been created from hot metal in the rarely used 16-point font of 'Monotype' Baskerville, chosen for its clarity and elegance of form. Tiny irregularities testify to the hand-crafted nature of the process, since the shape of each line, the very gap between letters, is adjusted by hand to create the most pleasing overall effect. A book is a pleasure of many senses: the feel of it in the hands, even the smell of the leather and ink all contribute to the enjoyment. Running your fingers over the paper, the difference between letterpress and litho printing is instantly discernable. You can feel the indentation where each letter has been impressed into the mould-made paper. This high quality paper is made from cotton rags and wood fibres dried on a cylindrical mould which produces the feathered edge known as the 'deckle'. The quarter-binding is of finest goatskin leather, dyed to a rich colour. The pattern on the hand-marbled paper sides is unique to each volume. The craftsmen and women who work on these volumes are rightly proud of their involvement in the project. From the hand-sewing of the pages to the blocking of each label in 24-carat gold, few books have had such care lavished on them. You can be confident that these exceptional editions will give pleasure for generations to come. Unmatched in comedy and tragedy, poetry and prose, Shakespeare's plays are the crowning jewel of the English language. The creation of beautiful reading editions worthy of their stature is a dream that all lovers of his works will understand – a dream realised in The Folio Society's Letterpress Shakespeare series. Here, Shakespeare's words are given the space and setting they deserve. The meticulously designed pages and the clear and elegant type entice the eye to read, whilst the leather quarterbindings, gilded top edges and hand-marbled paper sides make these volumes a pleasure to look at and a delight to own.
