Bewick, Thomas, illus.  Thomas Bewick: Ten working drawing reproductions shown with impressions of the corresponding engravings. Chicago: Cherryburn Press, 1972. Oblong 8vo (19.8 cm, 7.79"). Frontis, [14] pp.; 10 double-spread matted plates.
$125.00

One of only 160 copies printed: an elegantly designed portfolio presentation of ten of Bewick's preliminary drawings (reproduced from the originals by the Meriden Gravure Company) alongside reprintings => from the original blocks of their final engraved forms. (One engraving only is done from a later plate, which provides instructive contrast of effect.)
        The introduction was signed by the printer, Robert Hunter Middleton, a Bewick aficionado who expertly reproduced his work.
        Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, sans indicia.

Publisher's case of tan buckram and textured grey paper–covered sides, front cover and spine with red paper labels, in matching slipcase; slipcase rubbed but solid with spine cloth slightly foxed, case otherwise showing virtually no wear. => The enclosed portolio, pristine.  (41304)   Please RESHELVE This.
