About This Item

(Hammersmith): Doves Press, 1914. Octavo. 141pp. One of 150 copies, printed in red and black. Inscribed by T. J. Cobden-Sanderson, the Doves Press founder and printer, to his son Richard on 4 October 1913, which precedes the official publication date by several months. The text contains letters from T. J. Cobden-Sanderson to Lord and Lady Amberley, the parents of Bertrand Russell, whom Cobden-Sanderson raised as his own following the Amberley's tragic early death. The frontispiece photographic portrait of Cobden-Sanderson from 1863 and reproduction of two drawings mark the only illustrations to ever appear in a Doves Press book. Bound in full limp vellum with gilt-stamped lettering to spine. Bookseller tag at rear paste-down. Text block edges uniformly toned, spine lettering shows some oxidation. Overall a fine copy with an exceptional provenance. (Tidcombe DP33).
