Editor Danielson envisioned The Adelphi thus, according to an announcement in the December 24, 1921, Publishers Weekly: "The Adelphi Magazine, a quarterly magazine of art and letters, will be published by Henry Danielson, at the Moreland Press, Ltd., the first number appearing in January, 1922. In addition to the regular edition an edition de luxe will be published limited strictly to subscribers. This edition will contain a signed proof on fine paper of an original work by an eminent artist, and each copy will be numbered and will bear the name of the subscriber for whom it was printed. No copies of this edition will be put on sale nor will any be issued to persons other than subscribers."
Present here is issue #1, this copy being stated no. 20 of an edition explicitly limited to 25. It is not a subscriber copy, as projected above, nor can a 25-copy edition be imagined as "regular"; and no more were published. The contributors were Deverell Dagnal, Bernard Muddiman, Jack Darmuzey, Alexander Griffith, E. Powys Mathers, and Addington Osgoode, all of whom supplied short stories (the last recounting a lynching in the American South), and Walter Adolphe Roberts, who offered a poem.
Handsomely printed on fine quality paper, with several woodcuts.
