Limited to 500 copies - this copy is number 156. The text was hand-set by “I.W.S.” (“Sibthorp”) in Caslon Old Face and printed by hand on Maillol hand-made paper; illustrated with decorative shields drawn by Alexina Ogilvie; binding by James Burn & Co. The text is a facsimile of the first edition of Christopher Marlowe's play The Troublesome Reign and Lamentable Death of Edward the Second, King of England, with the Tragical Fall of Proud Mortimer (1594), with additional shields drawn by Alexina Ogilvie.
