Siena. Henry James.


New York: Red Angel Press, 2000. One of 100 copies. A delightful new press book that recaptures in prose and illustration Henry James’s impressions of his first visit to Siena. Colored woodcut illustrations by Ronald Keller. A fine copy, and a beautiful production. Rust cloth over boards; back board forms the base of a box, into which a woodcut image of Siena is nested (at a rounded slope deliberately reminiscent of that square's concave, shell-like shape); the four surrounding woodcuts reproduce the vertiginous 360 degree medieval square. Title printed in maroon on spine; handmade marbled paper on inside of front board. Front board features an inset papier mâché sculpture of a she-wolf. 11 3/4 x 10.”. Item #12298

Price: $750.00
