Folio. First edition. Limited edition of 300 copies. Signed by John Piper on the limitation page and “Artist’s Copy”. Original marbled cloth binding by Smith Settle. Gilt to spine.

‘Mr. Piper may go where he likes in the house and grounds, and is not to be molested’! The artist’s responses to Stowe are reproduced in a magnificent production and this was apparently his copy. Uncommon.
