About This Item

London: Bertram Rota, 1980. Quarto. Gilt decorated pebbled morocco by George Percival, t.e.g., others untrimmed. Fine in slipcase. First edition of the sixth in the sequence of Lubbock's artist's books, limited to eighty numbered copies, printed by Will Carter at the Rampant Lions Press, and signed by the author/artist. The illustrative matter consists of six double-page and six single- page hand-printed copperplates by Lubbock, with colors applied by intaglio and relief, with additional color highlighting applied by hand. "The motives of the prints range from the artist's garden to the mountains of central Asia and are accompanied by thoughts on that which lies beneath the appearance of meadow, sea or mountain, such as the processes of growth and their relationships to the universe."
