A Series of Copper Plates engraved in the Line manner by Edward Wadsworth and coloured by hand. Introduction and brief descriptions by Bernard Windler. Number 262 of 450 copies set in Koch Kursiv type and printed at the Curwen Press (recto pages only) on Zanders hand-made paper. Small folio. 11.5 X 7.5 ins. xv, 81 pp + Colophon. Quarter cream buckram with scarlet cloth covered boards. Gilt spine titling and gilt device on upper cover after a design by the artist. All edges uncut. Title-page, full page map, 4 head and tail-pieces (2 hand-coloured) and 17 full page engravings of ships and barges printed recto only and all but one coloured by hand. All by Edward Wadsworth. Copper plates destroyed after 450 copies printed. There is such a harmonious elegance between the typeface (Koch Kursiv) and the engravings that one must agree with Peter Tucker when he says, in Matrix 11, "It was one of the most beautiful books to come from the Curwen Press in the 1920s, or indeed at any other time." Wadsworth's only original book and completely successful. An especially fine copy in near fine slipcase with title label. N° de ref. de la librería 1704
