First edition, with an introduction by the artist and an appreciation by Kenneth Clark: an extensively illustrated survey of Stone's impressive accomplishments in wood engraving. A signed print of a previously unpublished engraving (of a waterfall in the Prescelly Mountains of south Wales) is laid in at the front; this engraving was printed with an Albion press by the artist, on handmade cream wove paper from Wookey Hole Mill. The colophon — which is also signed by Stone — notes that this is numbered copy 114 of 150 printed, done on Basingwerk parchment paper made by Grosvenor Chater, and bound in full buckram by W. & J. Mackay, with Cockerell endpapers.
        Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.

Publisher's blue cloth, spine with gilt-stamped title, in a striking slipcase covered in combed paper in black, grey, and white, matching the endpapers; volume spine sunned, slipcase showing minimal shelfwear. Pages crisp and clean. => A beautiful book for collectors of calligraphic and/or bookplate art as well as connoisseurs of wood engraving.  (39551)   Please RESHELVE This.
