Book Description

The sole UK printing published by The Golden Cockerel Press, UK in 1935. This is number '32' of 60 specially-bound copies signed by the author to the limitation page, from a total edition of 325 copies [Chanticleer 106]. The BOOK is in near Fine condition, bound in the publisher's original green morocco, by Sangorski & Sutcliffe with gilt titling to the spine. Top edge gilt, others uncut. A hint of offsetting to the blank end-papers. A wood-engraved pictorial title and 4 striking B/W plates by John Nash. With an additional suite of the 4 B/W wood-engraved plates on Japon, each signed in pencil by John Nash, loose in a paper envelope. The plates are in Fine condition with just a hint of creasing to the extreme outer edges of one of the plates. Housed in a custom cloth solander box with a leather titled label to spine. A very handsome production and extremely elusive with such attributes. Only the second copy we have handled.
