by Spare, Austin O., and Francis Marsden [pseud of Frederic Carter] [eds]
London: John Lane, 1917. Folio. Original printed wrappers. Illustrations and plates. Original wrappers somewhat darkened and soiled, recased into early decorated stiff wrappers, some creases and smudging; just a good copy. Volume I, Number 2 of this rather unusual journal of arts and letters. Only two numbers were published in this format. This is the ordinary issue - 50 deluxe copies were published with an additional woodcut printed on handmade paper. Contributors include Huxley, Cannan, Davies, L.P. Smith, Massingham, Squire, et al, with artwork, including original lithographs and woodcuts, by Spare, Brangwyn, Carter, Fauconnet, Sturge Moore, et al. An apology for one of the several snafus associated with the publication in the first number of Yeats's "Eight Poems" -- in this case the copyright question -- is printed inside the front wrapper. Spare's artwork and occult interests have enjoyed a resurgence of interest in recent decades, and copies of this original incarnation of FORM are no longer particularly common, even in less than stellar condition.
