James, Henry.

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 11 3/4 x 10.” (Item ID: 12298)
