Woodcut illustration from an Eric Gill design on title-page, woodcut printer’s device on colophon. Some wear to edges of wrappers. Correction made in blue ink, probably by Ritchie, to a printing error (correcting “Lilliam” to “Lillian”). With a brief tribute to Saul Marks by Wallace Nethery laid in. A near-fine copy. Red Cockerell wrappers, stitched at spine, printed paper label on front cover. Octavo. [10], [1, colophon], [1, blank] pp. Item #15532
