Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard

Gray, Thomas

Worcester, MA: Achille J. St. Onge, 1960. Brockman, James. 45pp. Printed by Enschedé en Zonen in Holland. The text of the book is accompanied by several full-page illustrations printed in green, along with a frontispiece portrait of the author. Featuring a designer binding by the renowned English binder James Brockman. A church steeple, represented with an onlay of bright red morocco, is depicted on the spine of the book and serves as a lettering piece for the title. The steeple rises above a churchyard comprised of onlays of moss-green morocco, with the silhouettes of graves and crosses stamped in dark gray. The decoration is set against a background of deep violet morocco. Four rows of rose-shaped tooling, in various shades of gold leaf and palladium, suggest lines of poetry. Brockman's work is in major public and private collections in England and the United States, including the Victoria and Albert Museum. He first apprenticed as a gold finisher, ascending to Sydney Cockerell's assistant for five years and later working with another master binder, Ivor Robinson. Brockman is a leader in innovative binding design and former president of the Designer Bookbinders. Housed in a violet buckram box lined with purple velvet, gilt-titled to spine. A.e.g. (2 3/8 by 1 5/8; 61x42mm).
