Item Description: [London], 1946. Edition limited to 750 copies, folio, pp. 100, [2]; full-page map, frontispiece, title vignette, and 6 handsome wood-engravings printed in green; previous owner's bookplate, else fine in original green cloth stamped in gilt, t.e.g. "This is another book of daring exploration in our Sea Series. I tried to produce these stories of high adventure in an exciting way, and planned to make the book a symphony in green. I even thought of scenting the paper with seaweed, and imagined clients commenting to each other: Strange thing about this book - it seems to bring a breath of the sea! The idea was humorously reported by my friend Robert Harling in Alphabet and Image, and I now hear that some advertisers are using my idea by scenting their paper suitably to obtain particular effects. The printing of John Buckland-Wright's magnificent engravings in green ink on gray-green paper was not entirely successful, as it diminished the essential brilliance obtained only by a contrast of full blacks on whites" (Christopher Sandford, the printer, in Cockalorum, Bibliography of the Golden Cockerel Press, 170).

Item Description: 1946. Golden Cockerel Press. 1946. Small folio. Original green full morocco, blocked in gilt, top edges gilt; pp. 100 + [2]; 9 wood-engravings by John Buckland Wright, these printed in dark green; spine slightly darkened otherwise a very good copy in the slipcase. One of 750 numbered copies, this one of 100 specially bound. "Another book of daring exploration in our Sea Series. I tried to produce these stories of high adventure in an exciting way, and planned to make the book a symphony in green." (Cockalorum 170). The author Geoffrey Rawson's own copy, with his bookplate. Also loosely inserted are: 1) A two page autograph letter (16.4.54) on Golden Cockerel Press headed paper from Christopher Sandford to Geoffrey Rawson (with a chip to top edge and some browning). Sandford, the proprietor of the Golden Cockerel Press, discusses the reviews that Rawson's Nelson's Letters had received. "The Birmingham Post gave us a splendid review; the TLS a long but stupid one - they would!; and Time and Tide a so-so one". He goes on to say that further review copies will be sent out. Sandford then makes an interesting economic point. "Times are not good for selling expensive books but I am satisfied with the progress of Nelson. I feel it is sterling worth and will continue to sell itself out slowly. Of course one cannot compare its sales with those of Flinders which came out at such a good time when everyone had money and little to spend it on." 2) A typed royalties statement (1 June 1955) to Geoffrey Rawson on Golden Cockerel Press headed paper detailing sales from 1954 - 1955. This statement would seem to confirm Sandford's assessment of the marketplace in the letter detailed above. In the year from April 1954 to March 1955 the Press sold 5 ordinary and 2 special copies of Nelson's Letters and 2 ordinary copies of Flinders' Narrative, netting Rawson a total of 2 pounds 8 shillings and 4 pence. 3) A short typed letter (22 May 1947) to Geoffrey Rawson from John King Davis, the dedicatee of the book, thanking him for the copy that had been sent to him and for the honour of the dedication, "Although I feel quite unworthy of the distinction you have conferred upon me, I am most appreciative of your kindness, and thank you for it." 4) A long autograph airletter from John King David to Geoffrey Rawson (6 June 1947). King fulsomely thanks Rawson again for dedicating the book to him before discussing the state of India. This leads into a discussion of what Rawson might include in his upcoming book on the Antarctic before discussing the sorry state of Australian politics. Bookseller Inventory # 2086715

A fine copy, very lightly mellowed at the spine panel, the box with some light typical age mellowing. SCARCE AND IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION OF THIS GOLDEN COCKEREL GEM. "The principal feature of this volume is the printing in full of Matthew Flinders’ narrative of his voyage in the schooner ‘Francis’ in 1788.Flinders’ voyage in the ‘Francis’ was but a minor incident in his long and varied career. He made so many important voyages, encountered so many desperate hazards and adventures, and, as the greatest navigator of his time, made so many important marine surveys. But this first printing of his own carefully written manuscript, as he left it, has its interest and its value in the literature of marine exploration." ‘.[T]he voyage and wreck of the ‘Sydney Cove’ were the cause of very important developments in the early history of New South Wales. The voyage itself was a very early attempt to open up overseas trade with the newly-founded settlement. The wreck of the ship and the escape of part of the crew along the coast led to the discoveries of coal. The existence of the wreck was directly responsible for Flinders’ voyage in the ‘Francis’. The mission on which the ‘Francis’ was bound, and the reasons for why Flonders was so anxious to take passage in her are amply explained in the text.’ The notes on Flinders, Bass, the wreck of the ‘Sidney Cove’, etc. are significant and important additions to the body of the work here presented with John Buckland Wright’s superb woodcut illustrations and the fine press work of the Golden Cockerel Press. This is a very pleasing copy of the rare first edition. Bookseller Inventory # 19997
