Descripción:

Former owner's tiny printed nameplate on fep, toning to endpapers, otherwise clean and secure in original binding of blue gray boards with woodcut illustration on front board of Wenceslas and his servant, very minor chipping of paper at spine ends. A very nice example of this handsomely designed and executed volume illustrated by Arthur Gaskin with an introduction by William Morris. 11 unnumbered leaves of plates OCLC: 7376190 Arthur J. Gaskin (1862 – 1928) was an English illustrator, painter, and designer of jewellery and enamelwork. After a stint illustrating for William Morris' Kelmscott Press, he pursued design independently. From Victorian Web: "Good King Wenceslas was published in 1895 in Birmingham by the Cornish Brothers, who had earlier issued Carols (1890), a book containing several designs by Gaskin and his School of Art colleagues. This company was primarily a bookseller trading in New Street, Birmingham, where it continued until the late 1950s, and the book was probably a vanity project issued in a small imprint; Gaskin dedicated it to his wife and many of the surviving copies are inscribed with his signature. The card binding and unusual format in a size between octavo and quarto are telling marks of minority publication, and it is now extremely rare. Gaskin designed the illustrations, ornamental head and tail-pieces, the type-faces and the initial letters, and the covers. The illustrations were developed in the form of detailed pencil drawings, some of which can be seen in Birmingham Art Gallery, and the effect is calculatedly bespoke. Printed in bold outlines from wood-engravings and (presumably) engraved by the artist, the page surfaces are animated with a striking combination of dramatic narratives and intricate neo-medieval patterns which simultaneously recall illuminated manuscripts, incunabula, and the Kelmscott style."
