Very slim small 8vo. London: Lanston Monotype Corp. for Eric Gill, 1928. Very slim small 8vo, 17, (3) pp. Original black buckram, as new. Bookplate (by David Jones) of Walter Shewring. A true rarity, limited to 55 copies and so inscribed in ink at the back by Eric Gill. Only two copies have sold at auction in the last 40 years; a handful of Institutional copies are noted. The book is a tiny treasure -- the title-page has a lovely device printed in red and the colophon has a large woodcut map of the location of Pigotts where Gill lived and worked at that time.
