Adam's Rib and other anomalous elements in the Hebrew Creation Myth. A new view by Robert Graves with wood engravings by James Metcalf.
by Graves, Robert. Metcalf, James, illustrator.
Roy. London: Trianon Press for Faber and Faber, 1955. Roy. 8vo., (6), 74 pp; with 36 wood-engravings printed in bistre & 36 illustrations in line. Original red cloth, pictorial dust-wrapper & card slip-case. Dust-jacket stained along spine, otherwise a perfect copy with a flawless binding and text. The super de luxe edition, copy Z of 26 copies reserved for the author, illustrator & publishers, signed by author & artist (as well as 250 signed & numbered and 2000 standard copies). This was Patrick Macleod’s copy (he was director of the Trianon Press), inscribed to him by Arnold Fawcus the founder of the Trianon Press: “Françoise and Pat with love from Arnold”. The enormously prolific Graves (over 160 published books of poetry, prose, etc.) is best remembered perhaps for his writings on mythology such as The White Goddess; in Adam’s Rib Graves revises the creation myth in Genesis and demonstrates both versions here with the illustrations by Metcalf recreating the Canaanite icons captured by the Hebrews when they overran Hebron.
