Descripción

8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Signed by Artist and Bookmakers. No. 5 of 75 copies. A wonderfully unusual book, from its subject matter to its selections and composition. This work is really three books in one, with the first being a serious field guide to the plants by George Henslow, taken mostly from Bentham's "Handbook of British Flora", which used blocks by Walter Hood Fitch. The second is a set of four tongue-in-cheek party menus with each menu including a poisonous plant referenced in Henslow, by Dr. E. Coffin, "irregular practitioner". The third is an original short story about Prudence. Audrey Niffenegger both wrote the story and illustrated it with both ink drawings and watercolours; there are four watercolours each on 3-panel foldouts. ***DESCRIPTION: Artist's book with four Giclee color prints; black-and-white letterpress prints and letterpress-printed text on Twinrocker handmade paper and Thieberge & Comar Chromatica; and Kozo Momi paper. Designed and conceived by Trisha Hammer, the three books are enclosed in a Japanese fabric-covered case which drops away to expose the sewing and non-adhesive binding, with a plant collection sleeve containing pressed Colchicum blossoms. Octavo size (approximately 9.25" tall), limited edition of 75 copies, this no. 5, SIGNED by the artist and bookmakers. ***CONDITION: Fine. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply, please contact seller for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell. Please contact us with any questions you may have, we are here to help. N° de ref. de la librería CNJL029
