Complied and illustrated by D.R. Wakefield. Folio-sized sheets of Barcham handmade paper printed with text or an etching/aquatint, sometimes both. The text was printed on an Albion Hand Press c.1860 and the illustrations on a different press of similar date. The anthology itself comprises 33 sheets including the title and colophon sheets. 100 copies of this set of sheets were printed. This copy is one of the last ten (no. 91), with which were included another 20 sheets, one for each of the illustrations in the anthology, each marked 1/10 and signed by the artist in pencil. This copy also has a third section comprising a unique selection of working proofs at various stages, there are 13 sheets in this selection. The whole is enclosed in a custom made green leather and oatmeal cloth box. The box has a little scuffing to the corners of the cloth and a small split to one end of a leather joint but is otherwise in very good condition. The prints are all in fine condition save for five of the sheets in the anthology which have been repatriated to the collection from picture frames, these all have some sign of their life in a frame ranging from subtle light fading of the paper to a couple which have been folded. One of the working proof sheets has also come from a frame and has a light tanning to the paper where it was exposed to light. Size: Folio.

Descripción de la librería: We are open from 09:00 to 17:30, Monday to Saturday. There is nearby "Pay & Display" parking available and we are a short walk from Petrsfield Railway Station (On the London to Portsmouth route). "The Petersfield Bookshop" specialises in buying and selling Antiquarian and second-hand books, but also sells antique maps and prints, new books, Ordnance Survey maps and has an on-site picture framing workshop. Inside the shop there is a display of antique dolls from Ann Westwood's private collection. A special feature of the premises is a canopied forecourt where second-hand books can be bought ¿ 24 hours a day, 365 days a year! "The Petersfield Bookshop" was founded in 1918 by Dr Harry Roberts, an East End doctor who had helped set up the Panel Scheme (the predecessor of the National Health Service). In 1958, Frank Westwood bought the business and relocated it to Chapel Street. Sadly Frank passed away in January 2006 but the shop continues as a family business, with Frank's wife Ann and sons David and John being partners.
