About this Item: La Jeune Parque, Paris, 1946. Leather Backed Boards. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: None Issued. Blake, William [woodblocks By Jean Vital Prost] (illustrator). First Thus. Finely bound in gilt-stamped quarter leater over marbled boards. Faint traces of robbing to outer edges of boards, else fine. This copy inscribed by Daniel-Rops to Duff Cooper and with the lovely Duff Cooper bookplate designed by Rex Whistler to the inside book cover. The book plate incorporates a portrait of Diana Cooper with bottles of champagne, grapes, & dispatch boxes. These essays by Daniel-Rops are highly important. Very nicely illustrated with Blake drawings done in woodblocks in two tones by Jean Vital Prost. There were 2000 numbered copies + 100 special copies. This copy is not numbered and is presumably one of a small number of copies hors commerce that would have been given to the author and translator for presentation purposes. Inscribed By Daniel-Rops.

About this Item: Oblong 8vo, 180 X 265mm, [28]pp (many folding) + 4 signed etchings, (Christine Tacq) The p's and q's Press, Thame, 2007, with Azul Editions, Paris., 2007. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Included. 1st Edition. One of 54 (60) copies set in Garamond, printed on heavy Somerset paper in Thame (by Christine Tacq) and signed by both artists. Illustrated with six woodcuts by Jose San Martin and eight etchings (and embossing) by Christine Tacq. This, one of 19 copies specially boxed in a solander case (lined with Kahdi paper to echo the colour of tarnished copper), with a folder of four signed etchings, and copper strips set into the grey cloth boards. A fine copy. In the etched and relief-printed 'A' that opens the book, Christine Tacq has sought to recover Blake's mystery method of printing. More etchings unfold to celebrate the visionary in the everyday and Blake's instructions for creating a book. They begin in a London railway station and end in the new British Library, drawing from the British Museum's Enlightenment Gallery, a random collection of creature images from around the world. Copies with odd numbers are with Jose San Martin. Copies with even numbers are bound by the Fine Book Bindery, of which ten special solander cases are lined with Kahdi paper. Copies 2-20 have copper strips set in the covers; copies 22-54 are held in a slipcase. 6 copies are inscribed A/P. Signed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # 6752
