About This Item

NP: NP. Manuscript. Half Leather. Very Good. 7 Original Watercolors, Etc.. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" This unique hand-made book is composed of three Katherine Mansfield short stories, with text hand-typed in a small sans serif face, illustrated with seven original paintings and drawings. The short stories are "The Doll's House", "A Dill Pickle", and "Psychology". The typed text averages 36 lines per page. The work is bound in half brown morocco over matching cloth. It is near fine, with only the faintest traces of wear. [6 blank], [45] pages of text and plates, [5 blank], broken up into 3 sections each irregularly paginated as 9 pages. Includes 7 original drawings and paintings, in watercolor, gouache, and ink. Though unsigned, the art demonstrates considerable skill. Some are abstract, some figurative. Two are on red paper, one on gray. The remainder of the work is largely on a cream Crane's laid stock. Though Crane's is based in the US, their cotton-based rag has long been popular in the UK and Europe. There are no identifying marks in the work, and in fact Mansfield's name itself does not appear. A delightful puzzle. We estimate the date to be ca. 1945 to 1955.
