Endeavours & Experiments: John Buckland Wright
by Christopher Buckland Wright

Published in 2006 this book showed a number of John Buckland Wright’s engravings, printed from the blocks, which show his experimental work, along with a descriptive essay by his son Christopher. Standard copies were quarter-bound in cloth and housed in a slipcase, while the very special copies contained two three-colour prints and a loose copy of
Cafe Dansant 1, 1929, shown above.
I have still a number of regular B edition copies (from the original 90), which do not include the extra three-colour original prints tipped-into the specials (these prints are displayed as tipped-in printed copies) but do include the loose print of
Cafe Dansant 1, one of the truly glorious wood engravings made by Buckland Wright. The book is bound in quarter vellum, and with the print, is housed in a solander box. Published at £425 these can be sold now at £365.




Single copies of long-out-of-print books

I have occasionally bought back copies of ‘old’ books, and it is pleasant to offer them again to you. Below are listed what is available, by title only:
a) Binding copies of
To War with Paper & Brush, Captain Edward Ardizzone, Official War Artist; folded and sewn sheets but not bound, final six copies £60 including postage inland.
b) While sorting out my store of overruns on printed sheets (many things saved over 39 years to include with a Bibliography of the Press) I found five sets of binding sheets of
Ravilious at War, which are offered at £210 each including inland postage. The book as published fetches over £500, and as it won't be reprinted, these sheets are a bargain.
c) Binding copies, sewn up and with tip-ins glued into place, a few copies of
Pen, paper & a box of paints, price £90 post free.
